    well I found my dummy east german 5.45mm rounds, I have one that is 1988 and a all most full plastic blister pack of 1987 dated 05 factory code training rounds. I do not have a real good camera to photo the base markings

    edit: Ok I decided to attempt to take pictures sorry about the quality its a phone camera

    on the left is the blister pack for the 1987 East German ak-74 training rounds, w/ single 1987 I would have doubled the purchase price, at the time to buy a unopened blister pack. Apparently, he was selling them individually and then gave up ?? what is this fetish of " I got to pen that rare box, package, sealed ammo can etc"

    In addition I have a single 1988 East German ak-74 training round with a East German Mak training round in the photo. I have numerous 9mm Mak East German training rounds and the clear plastic cube to store them. I posted the 9mm Mak training round here to show the difference

    all early training rounds has a steel base with polymer head, The bases are un-marked. I have these training rounds in 8mm mauser, 9mm para, 9 mak, 7.62 x39 . A fellow collector has one for the MP-44 in 8mm Kurz. I have been told they also came in other calibers IE: 32 acp ( 7.62 browning) & 7.62 x 54r

    Enjoy

    The only thing I've ever seen is drill rounds like that pictured above. Never saw a live round for sale at any shows, to include OGCA.

    I saw some for a very short time in the 1990's at a few gun shows and somewhere else, maybe Knob Creek in that time frame.

    Never seem any for sale.. Seen East German 5.45 ammo is US Military use though...

    Remember, 5.45 was almost a collectors round until the late 90s... Even after that, real Military ammo still is/was until the huge imports of surplus all at once.

    The only "German" 5.45 ammo I can remember seeing for sale is the commercial "RWS" ammo that was imported with the SSG-82s in the mid-late 90s. RWS lableled it as something weird, like .215 or something similar.
