Interesting, thanks for sharing.
I assume the plastic ones are Bakelittfabrikken manufacture?


#3

Maybe I am wrong; but not all “blanks”…yes ?


#4

At least the blue plastic one is a short range training round.


#5

The Belgian round is a short-range cartridge, and I believe the Japanese round is probably a Grenade Cartridge ?

Ray, that one was described as such already. “FN/62 Short Range Belgium”

No. 1 looks like an Ellis Merchantile movie blank.

The Belgian cartridge is not a short range practice cartridge but a less lethal loading by AFM. A copy of the 7.62x51 loading of this cartridge was experimented in Argentina.
