Below are two loads that are reportedly to be from Federal. The pink bullet marker round is unloaded and showed up at a trade show in Europe. There were a bowl full on the table of a US company, but the person who picked it up couldn’t remember if it was the Olin or Federal table. The mystery was solved when the loaded green marker showed up which is a Federal product.
Has anyone seen any promotional material on these rounds or the rounds themselves in either 9x19 or other calibers. They seem to date from about 2006 and it appears the project has been dropped.
Note the thickness of the inside structure of the case. I pulled out the base fo the green load to show how it functions. There are some dents on the pink load and the base won’t pull out.
