Standard 5,56 Blank dfor use in Minimi, in L85 type rifles, Steyrs, etc,etc
“R13BK” also fits the South African numbering system, and large quantities have been used by Australia since 1997 ( earliest “R13BK” date seen, others of 1996 are “RG LxAx” marking.)
WE got several 100,000s fired cases in our brass recycling operations ( for making 9mm Parabellum, 7,62 Tokarv and .380 ACP Blanks).
The Blanks were supplied both Linked and Loose (Plastic bags).
It is NOT an Exclusively “Netherlands” item.
Australia makes 5,56 Blanks every couple of years, and any shortfall is made up by Buying-in RG or FN or HP Blanks…the Long false Bullet profile is essential for feeding into Aus-Steyr rifles ( any of the US M200 style blanks tend to jam or misfeed…not that the Longer blanks do much better…they misfeed as well in the Steyr…
