Ever Cut an API Bullet Apart?.....Video Now

On the left in both pictures is an AP bullet, on the right is an API bullet. Both lots of ammo were purchased from different GB sellers as API ammunition. The AP ammo was purchased recently, the API ammo a couple years ago. Me and the seller of the fake API have come to an agreement, with me suggesting he corner his bullet supplier.

I will post a short video of cutting into the API bullet as soon as someone can tell me how to post a video.

    I've seen a seller advertise externally identical bullets as ".308" but they sure look like Soviet pulls from 7.62x54 ammo. 

    They did measure a little small but their design may call for a looser fit.

    I learned a lesson back when I was young and stupid not to dissemble live ammo.  My older brother was taking apart 12 gage shotgun shells using our dads vise in the garage.   I just walked in as he was turning the vise and ka blewy!!!!   Hit by a few pellets but the worst was not hearing much for a day or two!
