    I want one for a key chain and I am not going to try drilling the casing while the round is hot!

    Can I just grab the bullet and the shell casing with pliers and pull it apart ? It cant be pressed that hard into place?

    You can pull it out pretty easily with pliers. Just put the casing in a vice and yank out the bullet with pliers. Probably not a great idea to squeeze the case in the vice too tight though.

    I did it with my 7.62x54.

    I took rubber sheeting that I used to line the top of my workbench. About 1/16 inch stuff, and folded it a couple times.
    Folded it around the bullet. Put in vice securely.

    Have the case sticking up. Wrap in rubber also. Use vicegrips to grab a hold and then rock back and forth. If you rock side to side it will just move around in the vice.After a minute or two it should get loose. Just be careful you dont get gunpowder all over when it does come apart.

    Then just put the casing in the gun and fire to spend the primer

    Stupid question, but the gun powder that comes out of a round, is it the same as gun powder from a firecracker?

    Most fireworks are going to use black powder. Nitrocellulose/smokeless powder used in modern fireworks is not the same thing. Its more of an explosive than a burning propellant that modern smokeless powder is. If you were to throw a match on a pile of smokeless powder its just going to burn (inefficiently) unless its under pressure. Pressure actually makes smokeless powder work better, and black powder work worse.

    That's actually pretty much exactly what happened when I pulled a bullet from a 223 round. Poured a little pile of powder. It's burned pretty good, but nothing dramatic.

    What happens when you spend the primer without a bullet or gunpowder?

    We used to hit primers with a hammer for 4th of July when i was a kid. It's about the same boom as one of those throw-down caps (that is teeny-tiny).

    So its safe to load a round that has only a primer into a gun and release the hammer on it? Safe enough to do in my backyard?

    are you talking about a primed case or a primed case with a bullet it in? The latter is fucking stupid to do.

    you could damage your gun. when i shot one the bullet was stuck in the barrel and took some force to get out.
