Considering doing a second one as a gift for my bro's birthday and if I do ill take more pictures of the process.

All done with hand tools and no measuring, just eyeballing.

These are DUMMY rounds, no powder or anything that is dangerous. DO NOT cut or drill into a live round!

This is the bullet itself after I got it out of the case(next to one in the case for size comparison) having the full thing be the keychain would be way too big for a pocket, harder to lose yes, but not really practical.


After about 2-2.5 hours of hand drilling(couldn't find the electric drill, but was more fun and satisfying the hard manual way lol)


The end result


The parts of the casing that I had to hacksaw apart to get the bullet out

That is all kinds of awesome. Every kind. All of them. Unless your brother turns out to be a dick, he would utterly appreciate that.

....also...where'd you get the rounds from?
