I bumped into a dealer with a small quantity of LM 43 headstamped live rounds. They are strongly magnetic, both projectile and body. But one is not, the projectile is magnetic but the cartridge is not. It also has dummy holes and primer missing. But all have LM 43 headstamp. Wouldn’t it make sense to make dummies from the existing stock? Also looking at the extractor groove, it looks shiny, like the ones on magnetic rounds. Any idea?
Here it is side by side with a normal live round.
