M383 / M384 40mm HE (high-explosive) cartridges

The two HE (high-explosive) cartridges inflict personnel casualties in the target area with ground burst effects. Their fillers and body materials differ although performance traits are the same. Neither has the armor penetrating ability of the HEDP M430 round. They are both in wooden boxes, 50 rounds to a box.

The M383 is designed to inflict personnel casualties. It is packed in linked, 48-round belts.
