The 7.92 x 24 VBR is an Belgian pistol cartridge, designed by Rik van Bruaene as a potential replacement for 9×19mm Parabellum. It is based on the .30 Carbine cartridge, cut down to a length of 24mm. It can be loaded to the maximum overall length (OAL) of 32.10mm for use in 1911-style pistols, when the cartridge is loaded to a length of 29.6mm it should fit in existing pistols intended for the previously mentioned 9x19 cartridge, resulting in the so-called 7.92x24mm Short designation. Unlike the .308" diameter projectiles of its parent case, it uses 7.92mm (.312") projectiles commonly used in .32 ACP..[1]. The cartridge gained official recognition by the CIP in 2014 [2]
