THE Famous 40mm Bofors Innert Dummy

I wonder how many they made of these

A lot. The 40mm Bofors loading mechanism could be picky and test and adjustment required cycling with dummy rounds like this. Note that the projectile is secured to the case by a metal rod, not just a crimp, to ensure that a projectile did not get stuck in the barrel during testing.
