Re: Sectioned Bullets
I needed to hold the bullets to cut them in half with a hacksaw. Some of the bullets rotated a bit before they accepted the hacksaw blade cut, this rotation scuffed the bases on some.
I made a jig from a block of wood and inserted the bullets point first into this drilled hole for the initial cut/slice. I then used an indentation on the outside of the block to hold them on the belt sander. I also tried to use a grinding wheel with a jig but the temperature of the jacket against the wheel melted the lead and ruined any possibility of getting a true representation of the lead to jacket bond.
All-in-all a very interesting time, with the exception of a few cuts, scrapes and a burn from some lead it went very well.
(It's a lot more fun to shoot them than cut them in half.)
For the image(s) I placed the examples (bullets) directly on a flatbed scanner.
