    NEED TO ID The Factory Primer For The MECAR 90mm M697 TPFSDS

    Hoping someone here can help me ID the exact factory "M" designation for the primer used on the, MECAR 90mm M697 TPFSDS-T round used on the Cockerill KEnerga round? Grateful for any assistance.

    The M692A2 HESH-TP-T and the M689 AP-slug cases are primed with M913 primers, so I would say the M697 is most probably also primed with the M913 primer.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH!

    I am super grateful for your insight and information, Greetz. The MECAR 90mm 690A1 APFSDS-T Cockerill KEnerga round also used the M913 primer, so you are probably correct that the M697 TPFSDS-T round may as well. Super grateful for you help.
