Blank or paper sabot?

Is this 25 ACP (6.35) a paper bullet blank or paper sabot for shot?

This is blank sample sure.

Check the bullet with a magnet!

A similar headstamp occurs in 9mmP with a red paper bullet filled with powdered iron. I suspect your round is similar. It is a blank, and the weighted bullet is intended to allow semiautomatic fire from an autopistol.


Thanks THV and Lew. When I return home I will check it with a magnet.

Ha. The concept of .25 ACP shot is funny. Would be a killer daddy long legs load, though.

Hi Bruce,

If it’s a blank, it might look like this inside.

There is a compressed powder charge in the projectile and a dual load within the case.
