Recently came across 2 unopened boxes of 6.5 swede training ammo with red wood bullets in new condition. The box is red with "6,5 los ptr m/14", on top with a picture of the cartridge then 07075012 2-9 on the bottom. Are these rare or worth nothing? Never seen them but for $5 a box they are a great novelty. Thanks.

    They're blanks, the wood bullets were used so they would feed from the magazine. The ends of the barrels were threaded for a blank firing device that shredded the wood bullet. They used to be common and cheap, but I haven't seen much for sale in the last couple of years.
