      Picked this up at range. Looks like it has some sort of insert. Very small case volume. I thought it was a nickle plated case, but when it hit the cutoff wheel sparks flew right away.

      It does look like it would prevent any bullet setback deeper into the case. Downright positive even.

      There has been a fair amount of that stuff floating around lately even brass, I sort it out and chuck it. I don’t want to work up a new load for it because the case capacity isn’t the same a regular brass. That’s just my take on it anyway.
      I will look later and see if I have an empty box that they came in and check for a company or country.

      That’s for sure.

      I like the line “Good for malfunction training”. At least it is good for something.

      Brass in that style is out there also, IMT and Ammoload are two headstamps. I believe that IMT is what I found and like I say, I just chuck it.
      I scrounge empty boxes at the range also and I have seen those Maxxtech boxes.

      Edit to add, I didn’t see any boxes in the garage but I found a FN headstamp to add to the mix.

      I see the original photo didn’t make the jump to the new server, but I did find an article that answers the question I had in the OP.
