  • .50 PCTA
    The .50 PCTA ( Plastic Cased Telescoped Ammunition) was originally developed by ARES for the TARG (Telescoped Ammunition Revolver Gun) in the 1980s, which did not proceed beyond experimental status.
    PHOTO: Resembling shotgun shells, the ARES PCTA ( Plastic Cased Telescoped Ammunition) uses the same .50cal projectile from the standard M33 ball round, but it is encased within the propellant instead of being located ahead of it, as with conventional ammunition.
    The weapon employs 5mm (0.195 calibre) plastic cased�?telescoped ammunition ( PCTA ) firing a 3g 100%�?traced bullet at 960m/s.
