7.9×94 Patr.318

The 7.9×94 cartridge was developed in Germany during late 1930s for use in anti-tank rifles, loaded with relatively heavy (for its caliber) and fast armor-piercing bullets with tungsten core. It was adopted in 1938 and was used in two or three German anti-tank rifles and some experimental machine guns, but rapid progress of the armor made this round obsolete, and by 1944 it was withdrawn from service.
