Den viste patron er dansk 7,62 Model 1948, den har et projektil der er klædt i en kobbernikkel-belagt stålkappe. Produceret uændret indtil 1994 da et sidste lot blev lavet med den modificerede kugle fra 7,62x51 M/94 patronen.
Beginning in 1948-9, same time as the DISA (Madsen) M/48 machinegun was aquired, production started of the M/48 ball cartridge. Powder charge and other parameters were to standard US specifications so no modification was needed when the M/50 Garand rifle was put in use.
Last lot was made in 1994 (as M/48(94)) when a lot was made for the remaining guns using it, but loaded with a modified bullet.
