    Is it safe for him to keep? Blue-tipped is incendiary, right? Is it dangerous?

    If so, how should he dispose of it?

    It could be a rear round or maybe a de-primed one. :dunno:

    These beauties are made with fired brass M103 cases. We de-prime, neck size, and polish these cases, then seat and crimp a new M55A3 blue projectile for the dummy target practice. No powder, no primer, no explosive, and no tracing compound.

    If it's says M55A2 on the projectile then it's target practice.

    It's not inert in that it won't fire, it most definitely will fire. It's a practice round. It's an inert projo.
