    A month or so ago, I posted a picture of a few cartridges and in no time flat, you guys had deduced what they where.--> Here's a challenge for you all. -

    Here is another one for you. I dug around in my box of 'cartridges' (aka bullet collection) and found the ones that contained plastic in the cartridge.

    To make it easier, I put a common :D cartridge on each end. On the left side is the ever popular 25-20 and on the right, another .25 caliber, the formidable 25-35.

    Hope you enjoy the challenge.

    Every time I have used the Sim rounds I had to replace my M9 barrel with an 8mm barrel to fire SIM rounds. It is designed that way to prevent a live round from being fired in a force on force traning. I just took a shot at the other two.

    The 2nd one looks like a 44-40 dummy.

    Close enough. A guy gave that to me one time when I was in Southern Ca. He said it was a shell they use as blanks in the movies. I've never measured it, but it's about 44-40 and has hollow- end to end. I believe it used a primer and could shoot a blood capsule, but I'm not sure. It has a head stamp of 'De La Mare' above and 'Eng' below.

    I would have thought the 3rd one would have been the easiest and would have been the first one you all would have gotten.

    Well, I guess nobody knows the last one.

    The last one is a 7.62x51 plastic bullet, "less-lethal" crowd/riot control cartridge (essentially a 308 riot control round). Interestingly, before the plastic bullet's started being used, wood bullets were used (up until early '70s).
