A military small & medium caliber ammunition collection

Exhibit: Small Caliber High Velocity Program (SCHV)

Small Caliber High Velocity Program (SCHV) cartridges.

The SCHV program was one of several interrelated projects whose aim was to improve the combat effectiveness of the infantry rifle. It was thought that a small-caliber, high-velocity cartridge would have a greater hit probability than the current 7.62x51mm NATO rifle round due to its lower recoil and flatter trajectory.
