Belted Ammunition - just images

Following another discussion here I thought I am going to post various images of belted ammunition I have collected over the years in the internet.

Some of the images is not showing how ammo is linked but also how it “links” with people.

Please DO NOT run a discussion here on what round and what belt is in which gun.
If interest occurs please extract the image from here and open a new thread as otherwise we will have a total chaos as for who is referring to what.

If somebody has more images showing belted ammo please post.
But no “rare link examples” or so showing 5 or 10 rounds. This again can be done in separate threads.
This here is for “bulk”.

Well spotted!

Fantastic photos, I will have to search through my photos soon as I know I have plenty as well!

Regarding the linked 23x230 Rihkter, did they use specific links for that cartridge?

Yes, only used with the R-23.
But in 23x260 not 230.

Yes sorry 260, I ask as I have a cartridge so if I could ever find the link for it, that would be great!

I wish I had more time…


After a rummage through some of the less frequently visited corners of my computer, here’s what I found. Most of these were saved not for the gun and defintely not for the belt, but for something else of interest in the picture.

Combat loadout.



Looks like inside an AC-47?

UH-1 with armament subsystem equipped with a M134 Minigun.

The interior looks quite large for an UH-1 then.

It could be the picture perspective:
