Abstract : The patent relates to caseless and semi-caseless rounds of ammunition produced at very high production rates in which a molded cylinder of propellant charge has a maximum of impact strength. A support tube of combustible material lines the cylinder inner surface and its forward end receives a projectile that may seat against a bullet support plug, the plug and projectile being secured to the tube inner surface by a film of combustible adhesive. Similar adhesive secures the tube to the molded cylinder, and a primer disc or stub obturator to the tube.
