7.62x39mm
8mm Mauser
7.92x33mm (7.92 Kurz)
30-06 M2

5.56 NATO (223rem)
30 carbine

Holes drilled or deprimed works. These are for a tangible display for my presentation. Pictures are one thing, but when you hold a 30-06 up to a 223...it really shows.

Most of those rounds I would bet you have on hand so it's pretty easy just to make them. You can pull a bullet with most pliers then just dump the powder and pop the primer from the inside with a small punch or screwdriver or just chamber it and discharge into the ground and push the bullet back into the neck and a little fine grit sandpaper and some model paint will cover the plier marks.

Hm.. these primers are not popping out, I snaped off a punch on the 7.62X39The flash hole on them seems to be smaller than I have seen on the steel cases ones, Cheap ass punches dont help as well...

The same with the 8mm rounds, I may just do it with a live primer put a torch on it for a half second and pop the primer so it will fly out This is what I did to make key chains.

Yeah it got pushed back a week so I am golden still. I havent been around because its been the week from hell. I have been sick, had a history conferance to attend, 2 papers to write, and on top of it I nearly got hit by a tornado. That would have sucked since I am still fighting my insurance company for damages from an ice storm last month.

GAHHHH

Well it went just north of town.....I happen to live on the north end of town so It was within a mile.....thats close enough for me. I have actually be hit by 2 before.....once on a roadtrip and once at my old house back in my hometown. Luckily both were F1 or F0.

I live in Tornado alley.....but Id rather dealwith a twister than a hurricane or earthquake.
