We have on show 5 inert rounds
the type of bullets that most of the Gernan Army of the great war used with the rifles and machine guns. (Note the bullets are bunched and attached to a stripper clip as explained below).....
.......A stripper clip (also sometimes referred to as a charger clip) is used only for loading the magazine and is not necessary for the firearm to function, unlike an en bloc clip, which requires the clip with its ammunition to be inserted into the weapon to function. Generally, a weapon that can use a stripper clip for loading can also be loaded one round at a time, while a weapon designed for an en bloc clip cannot be used without the clip. It is called a 'stripper' clip because, after the bolt is opened and the stripper clip is placed in position (generally by placing it in a slot on either the receiver or bolt), the user presses on the cartridges from above, sliding them down and off the clip, thereby 'stripping' them off the stripper clip and into the magazine.
After the magazine is loaded, the stripper clip is removed and set aside for reloading, or simply discarded during combat.
