Does anyone have any contacts that do different marks of bullets am looking for examples of different .455 bullets mks I-VI.

Is there any legalities with inert ammo for Hollowpoints?

Off the top of my head I believe hollow point (expanding) ammunition was outlawed for use in warfare in 1898-ish. So not much use for ww2 re-enacting, umless this is for another project of course.

I have plenty of 9mm, .303, 7.92mm inerts if that's any good, though I doubt it from your question :lol:

Matt, how many .303 rounds do you have? I would be interested in some in bulk!
What would your price be for say 50 or 100?
Same question regarding 9mm.
Cheers, Matt

.455 ammo came in 6 marks. the mark III was a Hollow point manstopper, IV & V were wadcutter type all soft lead so banned under hague conventions (but had been devloped and produced pre Hague conventions).

Specialist auctions is the place for inert ammo, one thing is that unfortunately inert "expanding" ammunition is prohibited under section 5 of the 1968 firearms act.
