    Well I finally got around in making the 6 dummy 50 BMG door pulls for the bottom cabinet on my reloading bench.

    Doesn't it make you feel inadequate having to stare at something that is actually more than three inches long? :dunno:

    I probably would have reversed them. Little safer that way.

    Some sort of quick detach so you can tumble them once a month?

    I'm also surprised at the general lack of CRB-ness in the forum these days. It kinda pains me to see components unused like that. :tongueout:

    Simple really. Since I already had door pulls installed that the holes were 3 ¼” apart and I didn’t what to drill more holes I had to use the 50BMG instead of 30-06 like is on the top cabinets. I put the rounds in a v lock and drilled the top holes so that all of the holes were the same distance from the tip of the bullet. Tap the holes. Put a bolt in the door and screwed it in just enough to hold the round. Going thought the bottom hole and marked round where the bottom hole would be. Then once again using the V block and making sure the holes were straight level drilled and tap the bottom hole. Went to Ace Hardware and bought a foot long piece of small brass tubing that the screws would fit through. Using a small cooper tubing cutter cut 6 pieces ½ and 6 pieces ¾”. ½” are for the bottom and the ¾” are for the top. Sprayed them with polyurethane. Bought two different length screws that would fit the top and bottom. And install the rounds.
    The dummy rounds were $5.00 apiece shipped. They were also already sprayed.

    Not bad work for an old, senile guy... I bet your wife actually did them and you're just taking the credit. Selfish bastard, you don't deserve her. :fist:

    Bolded is the part I thought El Nino was asking about. I thought you had actually made the dummy round yourself.

    What you did to *mount* them, I thought of myself... but then I was thinking the case wall thickness wouldn't be very thick to be threading. There's enough meat there for a couple of good threads?

    Nope have no use for a 50 BMG. there is no place that I know of around here to shoot it. long enough range or even the range will let you shoot that type of gun. I know there has to be something around here because I know a couple of people that have them.

    Nope give her a hammer and nail and she will hit her own nail. But she sure can cook. You are not the first person to ever say that.
