8mm Nambu

The type 14 pistol was designed by Japanese general Kijiro Nambu circa 1925 (14th year of the Taisho emperor, hence the official designation), as an iprovement over the earlier pistol of his design. This pistol was adopted by Imperial Japanese Army and widely used during all S-E Asia campaigns and through the World War 2 as a standard Army sidearm. 8x22mm Nambu ammunition use a bottle-necked case with 103 grains (6.67 gramm) jacketed bullet ower the 3.5 grains (0.23 gramms) of smokeless powder, producing muzzle velocities of about 1065 fps (325 m/s) from the Type 14 pistol. In terms of energy this round is far inferior to other pistol cartridges, used by major powers in WW2, such as .45ACP, 9mm Luger and 7.62mm TT.
