As always a great bit of kit and i want one, got the m76 and m39 open rounds to use one on also got 7mm cap open rounds for the ingram damn easier to load than the 5mm and you dont lose the base plate which the 5mm can do.

Hi Claymore

At risk of drifting off topic, do the 7mm capped Ingram open carts need a different Det.Pin to the 5mm version Question
How different are the cartridges themselves please Question

Hi Clay'

Sounds as if the base of the cartridge bore and "primer" might differ then. 5mm caps push fit into a recess at the bottom of the cartridge after the "primer"has been pushed in.

Do the cartridges using 7mm caps have a 7mm dia. "primer" too Question

Yep, a proper primer so you dont lose them when the round is ejected which happens with the 5mm, one thing i have never tried is putting a 7mm cap in the 5mm round and seeing what happens (nothing probably).
