The magnetic moments and hyperfine fields at Fe sites in 3d-transition metals are calculated using the first principle discrete variational method in local density approximation. Although a large positive moment is retained at each Fe site, the hyperfine fields varied from large negative to large positive values. It is concluded that the absence of Mössbauer magnetic splitting does not necessarily imply the absence of local magnetic moments.
