    I've done it, although its harder to get the completed end through the amsteel when making the other loop.

    Yep, do them all the time in all sorts of line for all sorts of applications, even do them with gear spliced in line, like the bear bag though line, the small stuff sack for the rock is spliced onto the throw line.

    It is easy to make a locked Brummel on both ends of a rope.

    There are 2 methods for doing so. One is to make a normal locked brummel on both ends, but that methods requires passing the whole length of the rope through each end. Also, once you have finished one end, in splicing the other end you have to pass that whole splice through the splice on the other end. This can be frustrating.

    A second method is called the McDonald locked brummel and you work only with one end at a time. It is easier if you are working with a long length of rope and you don't have to pass the finished end through the rope on the second end.

    I started a thread on the method a little time back.
