Boy, you guys are really making me eat my words about sectioned cartridges, from a past thread. I said I liked sectioned cartridges and have a few, but would take a full loaded round over one anyday. Hmmmmm! Maybe another case of me "engaging big mouth, not engaging little brain.
Falcon, great efforts for a first time. I wouldn’t dare try that. I am not worried about catastrophe - it is just that I know I would screw it up!
I agree, though, with the idea that with common, affordable specimens, if one can keep a loaded one and section one. I also have a lot of dupes I have broken down to components, but most of those were done as a result of LE inquiries seeking information in criminal cases. That is what I have done in most cases, although a friend presented me with a sectioned 9mm that to this day, five years later, I have not been able to find a loaded one. Know what, after reading what you guys have to say, and thinking about what these sectioned rounds teach us, I no longer care that I can’t find a loaded one!
