    This blank ammunition is intended for automatic weapons. I’m not sure, but I think it is harder loaded than the ammunition with red projectile.

    This blank ammunition is intended for automatic weapons. I don't know what the black tip means, but a theory I heard is that it is representing a tracer round in a MG belt.

    This is a standard model 14 blank ammunition, but in the "white", an unpainted wooden projectile. It is intended for bolt rifles.

    This is the first type of blank ammunition for 6,5x55. The tip of the bullet is round and is similar in shape to the m/94 ball bullet.

    This is the first type of the blank 6,5x55 ammunition, with the wodden projectile dyed dark purple. The same colour can be found on 7,5mm Nagant and 8x57 RD ammunition.

    I really have no idea of what this might be, but as several is found I think it is legitimate. The case is produced by Marieberg in 1926, but it can also of been a reused one.

    The blank 6,5x55 ammunition m/17 is a ammunition intended for the m/94 carbine rifles used for ceremonial use and for shooting salute. The m/94 carbines has un-threaded mussels of the barrels, so it is not possible to mount a blank firing device for the use of the normal wooden projectile blanks. Therefore the need arouse for a new type of blanks in the Swedish defense, one with a star crimped mouth. The order went to the company Stockholms vapenfabrik as none of the regular suppliers were able to start such a small scale production as asked for.

    The base for the m/17 ammunition is live or blank 6,5x55 ammunition were the projectile is removed, and a crimp is done to the case mouth. The tip is sealed with red lacquer.

    As the cases is reused means that there is no new head stamp created for this ammunition, it can have any factory code or year.
    The new factory code 680 is only to be found on the box itself.
