English term or phrase: fingers off the stripper
XXX inert ammunition does not contain filler.
Single-piece inert rounds also exist, often machined as solid stainless steel cartridges.
While durable, they may also break the fingers off the stripper and damage the feeder/delinker through creating an artificial stoppage during jam clearance training.

Las ametralladoras utilizan cintas portacartuchos. Su funcionamiento requiere que el cartucho sea retirado de la cinta (o de los eslabones, según sea el sistema) para luego elevarlo y presentarlo ante la recámara, donde luego será introducido por el cerrojo. El alimentador tiene unos dedos que abrazan el culote del cartucho para poder moverlo. Siendo el cartucho un tubo de latón bastante dúctil y flexible no ofrece ningún problema para el alimentador, pero una munición de ejercicio fabricada en acero puede causar la rotura del alimentador, que es lo que aquí se explica.
