    thank you for your answer by the way. Do you know what materials they used for these Practice rounds? must be cheap I guess for just target practice.

    Hey Panzer,
    Sorry I didn't check back on this thread after I posted.
    To your question about being blue, Yes all practice rounds/ordnance are painted blue. From rounds to 500 pounders used by military aircraft. The material used on the rounds is a steel outer jacket with what seems to be aluminum tip. I have unscrewed the tips on some of these and the 20mm are hollow and other rounds were filled with a cement type material. I'm guessing to give the projectile the same weight as the real HE/AP rounds so that they have the same ballistics characteristics.
