I have a a round of .45 ACP that I was hoping for some ID on. Nickel Case, Stamped “R - P” over "45 AUTO"
Here’s where it gets fun. The projectile is a trunacated cone that projects about 6.2mm from the case and is about 6.4mm at the tip of the projo. It has a hole of approx 6.2mm in the projo, like a massive hollow poin, that is plugged by what appears top be a thick, pink, paper wadt. I was told (by a source I consider reliable) when I bought it that it was a load for Air Marshals, and that the hollow point contained a quantity of PETN.
I found an old ad for the Velex round in “The Poor Man’s James Bond” that looks similar. (If you ignore the BS there really is some good info in the series on survival and pioneering etc)
I hopw my description makes some sense and wonder If any one can shed any light on the rounds origin.
