Hey, it very quiet in here.....

I have a .45 Auto cartridge, entirely siver in color, including the bullet, case, and primer. None of its components will stick to a magnet.
It has a headstamp of F A 6 13.
It has three evenly spaced holes (approximately 1/8 inch size) in the case body below the bullet. The bullet is crimped in place with three "punch" style crimping marks, and has a 360* crimp ring around the case just at or below the base of the bullet.
Obviously, it is an inert round. What was it's specific purpose, and is it a common item?
Many Thanks for any help!!

I don't collect US military ammo, but I do see alot in my search for foreign rounds. I don't recall ever seeing the variation you describe. It has a US Frankford Aresenal headstamp, but fired cases have often been used for dummies.
