I bought this round about 25 years ago from a Mil-Surp store in Tulsa, OK. I have not been able to find any information on it, and I can’t find any pictures of it being used in any guns. It looks like it was linked at one point, but when removed it scuffed the finish around the neck. The primer seems to be intact, and it sounds like it is filled with powder. My wife has asked me to store it in my safe for safety reasons due to it’s size and the amount of powder it in. I dont know anything about dummy rounds so this may all be unnecessary.
Can anyone answer a few questions for me?
- Is it live?
- Is it legal to own without a DD permit?
- What gun uses it?
- What is the history on it (aluminum case? )
The closest I have come to finding anything on it was a story the original seller gave me about the owner being part of a project to create a round for a 30mm cannon. The round was not accepted, and the participants in the project were given “Souvenir Rounds” as a momento of the project.
