    Anyone see a bullet base like this??

    Anyone ever came across a bullet with a base like this before? Any ideas what it could be, just curious

    It's standard construction on 8mm FMJ war-era bullets which have the exposed lead core poured into the cup ... if that's what you mean.

    I haven't seen any with a centre cavity.... the hole appears to have been drilled through.
    If I'm going to be accused of it then it's just as well I did it.

    Could it be a tracer bullet with the incendiary compound missing???

    dose the hole go far in? if so it could be a penetrator round without the core? maybe?

    It is either a tracer bullet OR if it has a stepped jacket then an incendiary bullet. BOTH have the same sort of base. There should be a metal disc with a hole in it holding the core in place.
