Serbo-Croat term or phrase: Proširenje olovo-bakar
I found this term among the technical characteristics of a commercial explosive. I thought it was a mistake (shouldn't it be "proširenje olovo-bakra"?), but it's repeated twice like this.

specifična gustoća; temperatura paljenja; proširenje olovo-bakar; osjetljivost na udar

Proširenje olovo-bakar ...... 350 cm3

Could someone please advise?

neutral  Mira Stepanovic: Bronze is an alloy (bronza in Serbian) bronze leaded bronze - bronze to which 1-4% lead is added, while "bakar" = "copper" so I doubt this is the right answer, sorry.
