The US Army in Vietnam loaded 40 MM rounds with wooden bullets. As you may or may not know the track mounted Twin 40MM was used in an antipersonnel role in Vietnam. It fired from a four round clip. Each barrel had a four round clip loaded. When you pulled the trigger it fired alternately left barrel right barrel until it was empty or reloaded. The first round in each barrel was loaded with the wooden bullet. They would drive the track up to the front door of a VC bunker, aim at the door and pull the trigger. It would go KNOCK, KNOCK and Charlie would open the door and say "Yes?"
Hey, come on now. I was there.
