    They look to me like regular rounds that have no primer in them. Someone may have loaded a bullet on a empty case.

    Thumbs up Hand loads !

    I agree with Missing something on this one Lee, the primer pockets are clean and therefore the cases are most likely unused and the bullets have been loaded into the cases.

    Nice little lot !

    These are modern commercially sold cases made by Starline brass Co. of Sedalia, Missouri, USA. These are dummies that have been made from new cases and bullets probably for filling loops on imitation cowboy gunbelts or similar.

    Looking back at the picture, some of these rounds actually show staining where they look like they have been in loops on a leather belt.
