Once again very good work!
Thank you for sharing.
I have one of those FFV cartridges, interesting to see how it looks on the inside. Expected a smaller, thinner core backed by lead.
If you don’t mind me asking, how exactly do you cut «around» the wolfram cores? Looks like you did a very neat job around those tiny, sudden angles.

That one is the RUAG HC AP round, based on a French design used by the French Army as a machine-gun round (RUAG bought the rights to the design)
