Not much info in this thread but I broke down a m/94, m/41, m/12, m/14 and tracer round today so here are the pics:

First three are tracer related. I was surprised at the weight difference to m/41.

Very interesting post. The original M94 load used a German powder originally, and presumably Bofors and/or Dynamit Nobel produced a licensed copy or, more likely, developed their own versions. Flake powder granules would be a real pain to throw consistently with today's reloading tools, but the shape is advantageous owing to its controlled rate of deflagration.

The extruded granule in the M94/41 cartridge is a lot easier to work with. A lot of us reload with Reloder 22, made by Bofors. I have also used Vihta Vuori N165, which is a single base propellant. Theoretically, a single base powder will cause less throat erosion, although the various Swedish Mausers we typically find have little or no throat erosion compared with, e.g. British Enfields that were fed a diet of cordite ammo.
