One of the favorite items in my collection is a rifle cartridge, done in compound section. The markings indicate it was from the CETME rifle program (the section is from Richard Geer’s collection; as soon as I figure out the pic-posting thing, I’ll get a pic or 2 up).
I use sections in my classes, and even on the most common cartridge they’re a very valuable visual aid. I prefer sections that also bisect the bullet, as other posters here have listed.
Does anyone where I can send cartridges/bullets in the US to have them sectioned? I found a collector who did a number of VERY clean, symmetrical sections on exotic pistol rounds, but he was OCONUS and the shipping would have been either prohibitive or prohibited.
I’d like to get at least 10-20 of the cartridges in my collection (the ones I have multiple examples of) sectioned. Thanks in advance for any help. I don’t have the time to do it myself…a few ‘trial runs’ on some common ammo have shown that I also lack the patience and skill.
