4.73x33mm Caseless


The 4.73x33mm is a caseless munition which consists of a projectile nestled within a cuboid block of propellant. It suffered from cook offs and feeding problems during the ammunitions initial testing mostly due to the inability to easily eject unfired projectiles or to disperse heat in the form of casings. This round is only fired by the H&K G11 K2.
