Thread: cases/bullets for a bullet board display

    cases/bullets for a bullet board display

    I've seen a few people trading cases for creating a bullet board and now fancy having a shot at making one myself.
    I havea few calibres which I either shoot or cases I've picked up but would be interested in aquiring some others not on the list.
    No particular theme yet but will see what I gather and what looks good.
    I do have one relatively unusual/uncommon calibre which is .280rem and the AI version which I can offer in trade if it helps
    I have :-
    .223 Rem
    5.56mm
    .308 Win
    7.62
    6mmBR
    .270 Win
    .280 Rem
    .3006 Spr
    .38Spl
    .357 Mag
    .22lr

    If in the unlikely event you don't have .17 HMR and .22, I'll happily drop a couple of each in the post for no charge.

    I do have .22lr (by the handful lol) but not hmr. if you are able to spare an hmr case or two that would be great.
    I think the heads count as expanding so a small hacksaw cut up one side should 'deactivate' them. it'd be invisible if mounted correctly.

    I’ve probably got spare empty cases in the following:

    6mm PPC
    .22 PPC-100 Short
    .577x2-3/4”
    .450-500x2-7/8”
    .45-70
    45-90
    .400-450x3”
    .303”
    7x57
    .45 ACP
    .243
    Plus a couple more express rifle calibres.

    If any are of use send me a PM with your address, just return a few stamps to cover the postage.

    Can anyone help advise how I can SAFELY remove either the round head (bullet), powder or percussion cap from a .17 HMR round in order to post to the gentleman in question?

    Fire it - safely . Pretty sure that's your only option with that one. If you put it in a bullet puller you'd have to grip it by the rim and hit it. The rim is where the primer is.

    lol thanks, but I'm not sure I fancy searching forever to find and piece back together all the bits of the round

    Maybe you could gently pull the head with pliers and fire the case, the put the head back?
