    And if you are using them for toggles on a marlin spike, knock out the spent primer and pass a cord inside like the OP did and tie the other end around your whoopie and you won't lose you toggle.

    I like your way of thinking and your ingenuity!

    Kinda funny, I was just looking at some 7mm rounds tonight in the shop, thinkin "this brass would make some great toggles!" Now I've got a second idea for them too. Great minds think alike!!!

    Alan- your idea is great and it does not require a drill press. I like it for whoopie sling toggles but it would not center it on the brass like what I did in order to use them through tarp grommets. I like the primer removal idea alot.

    I knock the spent primers out of shotshells, and use them for chain pulls on ceiling fans.

    I believe that was Private Gomer Pyle's response to Private Joker's question, "Are those live rounds?" in the classic movie Full Metal Jacket.

    I won't be at the Hot Springs hang, but if you ever decide to sell these for good American dollars, I'll gladly part with a few of them to get my hands on a few of these!

    All personally fired by good ol' Sarge....not just because I like being thorough. I like perforating targets!
