8×63 M32 Bofors

This round was developed during early 1930s on request from Swedish army, as a dedicated medium machine gun ammunition, to provide longer effective range and better lethality when compatred to 6.5mm rifle ammunition. It was chambered in Browning-type machine guns, and in one type of bolt-action rifle, which was issued to machine gun crews. This round was declared obsolete and finally removed from Swedish service by late 1980s or so.
