Abstract : The patent relates to a combustible cartridge case for use with a fully telescoped round of ammunition wherein the laminated case is fabricated by wrapping thin sheets of felted combustible material. Flame penetration is moderated by applying thin films of deterrent material such as mylar between the layers to permit programmed energy release for specific tailoring of various ordnance requirements.
