I could use a hand, having trouble finding it...
Cartridge, Small Arms, Blank, 5.56x45mm, M200
The 5.56-mm blank M200 (M2 link, A075) blank cartridge has no projectile. The case mouth is closed with a seven-petal rosette crimp and has a violet tip. The original M200 blank cartridge had a white tip. Field use of this cartridge resulted in residue buildup, which caused malfunctions. Only the violet-tipped M200 cartridge should be used. The blank round is used during training when simulated live fire is desired. An M15A2 blank-firing attachment must be used to fire this ammunition.
thanks a bunch...
