.30-06 "FA VB 33" grenade blank

Wikipedia says that Viven-Bessières grenade weighs 1.5 kg. I can barely hear the propellant inside. It is amazing that it’d push 1.5kg into the air!!!

You have misunderstood. The grenade launcher weighs 1.5kg.
The grenade only weighs around 490 grams. That is a nice blank cartridge.

You are right, I was running out of the house, my mistake.
I bumped into a small early .30-06 blank collection at SLICS, even though the last one is not a blank.
