Been reading Ken Elks new book & was looking at the part concerning rifle & LMG dummy (or excercise) ammunition. It's amazing how many variations there are of this stuff and they are still quite hard to find. I took these photos to send to Ken & thought I might share them here. The first three are 6.5mm dummies. The one on the left has a solid bullet, the middle one has a hollow bullet (also has two indentations on the case head) and the one on the right has a steel bullet and primer (seems to me that would be hard on a firing pin!). The 7.7mm dummy is described in the book as being a T-97 Tank MG dummy, only in the book they are supposed to have an empty primer pocket. This one has an unstruck copper primer. You wanna go crazy? Try collecting the ammo!
