Joe, this company made two basic types of dummies in the following calibers: 7.65 mm Parabellum, 9 mm Parabellum, 10 mm Auto, .40 S&W, .45 ACP, 5.56x45, 7.62x39, 7.5x55, 7.62x51, .30-06, .50 and 12 gauge. One model have a polyurethane “primer” and the other a base cavity, and these also were offered anodized in many different colours. Regards, Fede.

And you can also chose the primer color like green or orange. Dixi was specialized for fuzes years ago. Now, in the ammunition field, they are making dummies, aluminium base inserts for AP rounds and 4.6 turned projectiles for a Northern Europe company!
