I won't be drilling anything (get your mind out of the gutter, I'm talking about bullets, oh wait: repeat previous statement)

Soft .22 lead is no comparison to FMJ .50 call BMG rounds... I've pulled .45 bullets off before.. Of course, it IS easier when you use the tool actually MADE to pull bullets apart. Simply lock the round into one side of the tool, then swing the other down and impact against something solid (like the ground)... Kinetic forces pull the bullet out of the shell, along with the powder, leaving the case with the primer intact... Then it's just a matter of removing the primer... Mine works for .45 and maybe a few other calibers, so the .50 BMG will be TFB for it.

My expertise is Satellites, not tiny hand held explosive devices, so I'm going to forgo the slamming stuff on the ground. Find out if it legal to ship a live round somehow and it's your's -otherwise stop by next time you are in Los Angeles.

It's one of these...

Chances of me getting out to LA are slim to nil... At least for the next few years/decades...

I'll check things more on this end... I'll PM you with info.

If you've learned something, then it's all good baby...

I grew up around guns... My father was a certified NRA instructor for years... We would go to the range often, and shot in competitions together. Good times...

My cousin has 2 black powder pistols that the dummy never cleaned after firing. We were drinking so I guess that always works as an excuse...

Anyways, now they're basically welded together with rust and would make perfect tap handles! Really expensive tap handles.

I think the butt end of a small fishing rod would be cool.. Maybe a little ice fishing rod..
