Sam is correct that No. 4 is a Birmingham Metal and Munitions, cordite loaded case, which is stamped as being Mk VI (215 gr round-nosed projectile). However, your case shows a 174gr Mk 7 projectile, which has obviously been pulled (the marks). The Mk VI cartridge was approved in 1904 and the Mk VII in 1910. The picture looks like the neck of the case has been ‘flared’ by pulling the projectile (most likely by using pliers).

  1. should be a German (?) blank 7,62x51.
    This one seams to be modified - front part cut off, no more powder inside.
    The light green part is normally no part of the cartridge.

Hi Mike,

No. 1 is a DAG promotional ball point pen-cartridge, but the pen is missing.
