Number 3 looks like a 7.62mm NATO bullet, have you measured its diameter?

The two bullets at the left appear to be the mk.8 type. Jack


#4

Rafale, were these loaded with real propellant or with lead shot as a replacement?


#5

I don’t know, when I got them they were empty.

I think these are dummy’s, as a nickel primer is with FN an inert one, and the only nickeled cases I know used for live ammo is a 7.65x54 mauser cartridge short-range, all other nickeled cases are dummy’s. Probebly they used the bullets on hand.
