    This is the early form of inert round that has been "updated" by getting the projectile painted green to follow the newer regulations on cartridge markings.

    This is the late style inert round of 8x63. The "projectile" is a full length rod going to the bottom of the case.

    This inert round is quite unusual. I have not found a model number for it, and the samples I have seen are all manufactured by Karlsborg ammunition factory in 1932 or 1938. The case is in plane brass, not chromed as the later 8x63 models. I have no proof of it, but I have a hunch that this first type were ordered by the air force. It is to be found samples in the air force museums in Sweden, and I have some samples on the air force metallic desintergrating link.

    The inert ammunition with just one groove can be counted in one hands fingers, and I can really only think of the 9x20 inert m/19.
    All the inert 8x63 ammunition I have seen until now has the typical two grooves in the case.
