    This inert round is without the typical green projectile that is standard for the modern inert round. The 2 groves around the case are where it should be. The cartridge is "blind", without primer and propellant. The cartridge is made for safe practicing with the weapon.
    This special round marked "VPT 41" is made in Finland for the Swedish government in 1941.
    VPT is short for "Valtion Patruunathedas" in Lapua, Finland.
    One big thanks to John Giles, California for this picture!

    This is a very late type of inert round. It is "cheaply" made without the 3 classical grooves in the case.

    This seems to be an experimental/first production of its own kind. It has a shorter projectile than the live round or the standard issue inert coming later on. It is not only a by accident squeeze d round, as more identical rounds is to be found. I have no explanation of why the projectile is shortened.

    This is an inert round that has been upgraded to have the projectile painted green to follow the standard introduced in the 40th. It is originally designated “6,5mm Blindpatron m/19 för kulspruta”, but is used in all 6,5mm weapons by this time.

    This is the second generation of inert round in 6,5x55, the m/99 (1899). It is a all brass construction and it is identified with the two rills on the projectile. It should probably have a empty primer in place, something that is missing on this example. It is manufactured by the Marieberg ammunitions fabrik in 1902.
