Description

This blank cartridge is provided for saluting purposes and simulated firing.

The complete round consists of cartridge case M9A1 containing percussion primer M1B1A2 and a 1 pound charge of granular potassium nitrate black powder in a cotton cloth bag. The bag is fabricated in the shape of a hollow cylinder to allow assembly over the primer. The cartridge case is sealed by a closing cup which is cemented over the black powder charge.

The M337A1 cartridge is similar to the M337 except that sodium nitrate black powder is used as the charge.
