30-06 “Dummy” Bullets shown in a M1 Garand en bloc clip. The holes drilled into the cartridge case wall are visible above the level of the top of the clip for quick and positive identification. These are a great item to have when teaching the new or younger shooter the function of the Garand. Sorry, no clip is included with the 8 30-06 dummy rounds.
These inert Action Proving rounds are made to SAAMI standards. Each cartridge is fully re-sized so that it will chamber properly in your firearm.
In addition to resizing, the primer pocket is removed entirely, and a clean hole is drilled on the case wall, so that the inert status of the round can be quickly verified. A heavy crimp has been applied to the cartridges ensuring that they will not pull apart during function testing. All cartridges are brass cased (unless noted otherwise) and quality bullets are used. The goal is to produce a safe round that tests the function of a firearm in a realistic manner.
These inert cartridges are made using actual cartridge components and variations in final brass finish will be present. I do try to use the shiniest brass and always tumble the completed cartridge prior to shipping, but still, some may have light blemishes. This does not effect their functioning.
6 Pocket bandoleer for M1 Garand. These bandoleers are real military surplus. Various stampings on the cloth. Some USGI some foreign. All are unused but may show signs of being in a can for decades but there will be no rips or large stains. Some may have ‘stamp over’ markings (done by the military when they reissued or repacked the bandoleers) Others may have no markings. These were pulled from sealed ammo cans and the cartridges and enbloc clips removed. You get the cloth bandoleer and the 6 cardboard inserts.

These CUTAWAY cartridges are carefully made from actual cartridge components. An example of a 45 ACP FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) and 45 ACP HP (Hollow point) cartridge is included. One of the primers is cut in half with the cartridge and the other will have an intact (spent) primer installed after the cut so you can see clearly how it is oriented in the primer pocket.
I make these up by hand and they take a bit of time and finishing so delivery times may be a little longer than my normal turnaround time. I use these in my firearms courses and they are always studied by the students.
This is a great teaching tool. In every firearm class students ask, “What ammo should I buy?” Using actual INERT .38 special cartridges and your speed loader, you can pass around an example of 6 bullet designs. This allows students to have a visual aid in hand as you explain the different projectile profiles and uses. Best yet, secured in your speed loader, nothing gets dropped or lost! Sure makes explaining what the bullets look like and what they are used for easier when the students can see them up close. Looks cool on your shelf too!
Includes a hollow point, semi wad cutter, shot shell, wad cutter, FMJ, and round nose lead.
These posters are available for purchase (without the watermark of course) I came up with these posters for our firearm courses and a 20x30 inch poster of each hangs in our classroom. Learning from others mistakes has always been a powerful teaching tool! If it helps any of your students learn more about firearm safety than it is worth it. I do not print these in bulk ( I actually go to Walgreen’s to print them) and I get them printed to order. The poster is shipped separately from anything else you may order on the website. More firearm safety posters coming soon.
Here is another great visual aid for the classroom or just a really cool display set. This is a set of 4 different 2 3/4” 12 gauge shotgun shells, each with a different load. They include #8 bird shot, BBB load, 00 Buck load and a very nice 12 gauge slug. The best part is the shells are translucent and a transparent shot card is used under a roll crimp! These look great and are the best and easiest way to describe and show what goes into the makeup of different loads. The entire shell is INERT but looks like the real deal down to the fake powder (actually coffee grinds), a cork buffer, a wad that has had 2 of the ‘petals’ removed to better see the load, and a transparent shot card.
Breaks down into 5 pieces! The case with base of AP jacket remaining, the base filler cap, the carbide steel core, lead point filler, and the upper part of the copper jacket with the distinctive black-tip.
This is a great set for instructors who teach HP or service rifle courses. There are many, many .224 bullets out there this is a set of 7 that illustrates most major groups. You get from left to right: Ballistic silver tip (it just looks so cool), 75 Grain A-max ( long range & competition), Spitzer style lead tip (hunting), hollow point (defense), Full metal jacket 55 grain (target / plinking), SS109 /m855 62 grain “green tip (standard issue), and the new M855A1 EPR 62 grain ( new standard issue / still in development / testing )
All rounds in the set INCLUDING the M855 and M855A1 have been completely de-milled by removing powder/primer, drilling out primer pocket and drilling a case wall hole. This is not sold as live ammunition and live cartridges cannot be made from these INERT teaching aids.
If it is illegal in your state or community to possess steel core rifle cartridges I would caution you that even though de-milled & completely inert, the 2 steel core inert cartridges may not be legal to possess. Check your laws before ordering.
This set is very time consuming to make and will only be available in limited numbers and for a limited time.
