Factory Dummy Cartridge History:
Most all “Factory” dummy cartridges are dyed brown, or chromed case and have no gunpowder, with either no primer or a drilled inert primer, or many have no primer pocket at all or no hole in the primer pocket and in rimfire dummy cartridges, in most cases, will have a hole drilled in the head to indicate a dummy cartridge.
They are all inert, not live and will not fire in a firearm.
Factory dummy cartridges are used by firearms manufactures, gunsmiths and many firearms owners to safely test the firearm’s actions. The military also uses them for drills and parades,.

History of th2 221 Remington Fireball caliber.
Due to the demand for varmint hunting and silhouette shooting, the .221 Remington Fireball cartridge was introduced by Remington in 1963 for the (then new) Remington XP-100 pistol (now an obsolete firearm).
The cartridge is based on a shortened .222 Remington cartridge with a .22 caliber projectile, a velocity of (up to) 2,650 feet per second and (up to) 765 foot pounds per square inch of energy; “that is over the 357 Magnum”. Some also consider this a rifle cartridge.
