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,.
Please Note:
Any hand loader can produce cheap dummy cartridges by not loading a primer or gunpowder into a cartridge, or by drilling a hole in a live cartridge case and emptying the powder, but beware the primer is live! Normally only factory dummy cartridges are dyed brown or chromed and used for safety reasons.

History of the .223 Remington and *5.56 NATO* cartridge:
The .223 Remington was introduced in 1957 as an experimental cartridge for the M4 (AR-15) rifle, as the United States forces was looking to replace the 7.62x51mm NATO* (308 Winchester) with a lighter recoil cartridge with less range for closer combat situations.
In 1964 it was adopted by the United Stated Army as the 5.6x45mm Ball cartridge: M193.Shortly after the United States Army adopted the cartridge, Remington introduced the 223 Remington to the general public for the sporting and hunting industry.
In 1977, NATO* countries signed an agreement to select the *5.56x45mm (5.6 NATO) cartridge to replace the 7.62x51mm or7.62 NATO* cartridge; however, due to the devastating wound damage of the 55 grain M193, it was decided to use the Belgian 62 grain SS109 projectile, which was soon standardized as the official NATO* cartridge.
The .223 Remington and 5.56x45mm NATO* are not actually identical, although, the outside case dimensions are approximately the same, the 5.56x45mm (5.56 NATO) has a thicker walled case and is usually loaded to higher pressures.
Because of the higher 5.56x45mm (5.56 NATO) pressures, it is best not to use the 5.56x45mm (5.56 NATO) cartridge in a rifle chambered for the lower pressure .223 Remington.
*NATO is an acronym for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, an alliance of app. 30 countries, started after World War II, which includes the United States, most European Union countries, Canada, and Turkey.
* 5.56 in the 5.56 NATO refers to the diameter of the projectile 5.6mm or 22 caliber (.224″)
*45mm in 5.6x45mm refer to the case length (1.75″).
