This cartridge consists of a malleable iron body and steel base chambered to receive a 10 gauge blank cartridge. The modified base has indentations on either side of the chamber to facilitate removal of the blank cartridge after firing. A spring and ball retainer, assembled adjacent to the shoulder of the base cap to hold the blank cartridge in the chamber, is also provided on the modified base. The cartridge is fitted with a dummy fuze which has a hole through the center to allow the escape of burned gases.
