Swiss .50 / 12.7x99 dummy

seems to have a ? Fuchs number 2632 written on it

if that is a “Fuchs”…I have no idea how to such his reference by number

I added three more (no case writing)

the two with aluminum case look like the experimental 30-06 blanks from Norway.
Maybe they tried the same in 50BMG
Below are some quick pictures from what I have from this Experiment.
All pieces are headstamped R.A. 57

The dummy is Swiss and the plastic bulleted blanks should belong to a French experimental series which also included 20x102 and 20x139 aluminum cases.

Alex thanks (but we shouldn’t speak of our Swiss pal like that!!)…in the respective drawer they go

expect more ID questions as retirement and COVID set in…but it isn’t a quick process to photo, edit, send to my desk top and create/type/attch photos in a Forum post

right ?

Is the brass cased a French as well…or only the aluminum ?

I think, the brass cased one is also a Paulet type blank from France…

there was one…now without pics…already identified here

Images fixed.

I said something inappropriate with my lousy English?

This is the box of the brass cased variant:

Cartouches de 12,7 mm à balles plastique - 1a

thx Fede for the quick solution…with the missing pics…
Staying still confined in the house, I have more time to lookup things, and I remembered me on the question from German collector manuel…
Have a healthy time

no, he joked because you said “the DUMMY” is Swiss…

Ah, I was not sure and better than offending somebody!

Though regardless of nationality the “dummy” applies to 99% of this world’s population… (I know, I know I am harsh but this is my daily experience).


Not a Fuchs ref #

That entry was under “Various U.S. Experimental Rounds Not of the 12.7x99 Configuration”.

no…I was playing with our #1 Swiss collector as you the the “dummy is Swiss”

well thanks all “case closed”

stay tuned for a couple more “ID ??” today


I know it’s getting late for the oldsters across the pond !!!

I’ll post some odd ball rounds soon

Another year older too I see Pepper - Happy birthday.
