Recently there have been some questions and answers on sectioning cartridges and at times there have been comments about otherwise deactivating live rounds for various purposes.
Per the webmaster, effective immediately, the site policy on such topics will be to prohibit them:
Sectioning or any manner of disassembly of cartridges may result in death or serious bodily injury if not done with extreme caution by people who are well aware of the exact nature of the components involved using appropriate equipment and safety precautions. Leave this sort of work to experts! Due to liability concerns, the IAA will not allow discussion of such techniques on this forum. Admire the results, learn from these . . . but in the strongest possible terms, we caution AGAINST anyone attempting to conduct such procedures on their own.
