Rick- the 7-30 Waters is a darned good little round. If you think THAT is pricey, I inherited a Winchester 71 in .348 Winchester. About $79/ 20 rounds.

SOME used a hollow thin wood bullet to hold fine shot for a pistol.

Also have a few subcaliber training rounds- very small cartridge fired thru an adapter in a military firearm. 4mm Luger centerfire, special 9mm round fired in the AT-4 rocket launcher trainer, .297/230 Morris, etc. Then there is just flat strange stuff- .14 Alton Jones, the Colt 9.8mm Auto, .35 S&W Auto, .30 Pedersen, etc.
.30 Pedersen???
That's like gold in milsurp ammo collecting!
I have seen mags and cartridges for the SMAW spotting rifles, but not the one for the AT4. Are they similar?

AT-4 is a LAW on steroids. For trainer, it has a subcaliber insert that uses a special 9mm Parabellum tracer that is loaded WAY down, so trajectory matches the trajectory of an AT-4 rocket. Looks like this:
