MkIII Manstopper

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Trying to find a new source of bullets to recreate the famous MKIII Manstopper cartridge for the venerable Webley. Any old shooters out there have a clue?

    I have a bag of 100 swaged bullets made by Phoenix Munitions Ltd of Birmingham, but I don't know if they are still in business, since these date from before the handgun ban. I am using other stuff until I can find another source. Given the shape (hollow base/hollow point), I am guessing swaging is the only practical method of making them.

    They may be banned under the Geneva convention, but they make great wadcutters :twisted:
