Sounds like a Dutch AP to me.

Perhaps it is a ball with black paint.
A Dutch AP bullet looks like this.

Thanks for the photo and info Dutch, that is not my round, mine is crimped into a smooth cannelure, this has to be a product of the stuffers friend "the faker", I do have other words to describe them, I am sure Dutch you can guess what they are, regards Randy

Tungsten alloy is used in the best AP rounds and that is non-magnetic (at least, on checking the various tungsten alloy cores I have, the response to a strong magnet is weak to zero).

My FAC covers me for everything except HE - which I wouldn't want in the house anyway! I also included spotting rounds last time, as there is a degree of uncertainty over those.
