You epoxied a piece of tungsten into the hollow cavity of a hollow point bullet?

It would probably stick [%|]

don't know........but maybe the bullet won't fly like you think it would.

Shouldn't be a problem. I put cigarette lighter flints in them to shoot propane bottles all the time without any problems, and without any glue.

Are you playing with your Dremel bits again?[:)] I did have the same thoughts once when I bought a tungsten bit for mine. But that would get expensive to play with.

What about a BB or a small screw? Armor piercing? I wouldn't recommend it for self defense. It might fun just as an experiment. Any homemade ammo modification or handload could potentially be used against you in a law suit.

Hows about a small rifle primer?

Here's one for you that I heard about recently. Take a big bore hollow point bullet, toss in some black powder and cap it with a rifle primer.(you may have to drill it out to accept the primer, i forget now) It is suppossed to make a nice bang! [:)] I'll get the exact recipe before the night is through.

2% thoriated tungsten I can get by the handfull. Not a problem with price. I was thinking more of a punch on light metal objects could be had. The tungsten being close to the weight of lead and using the hollow point for a collet it would be a little better than just the hollow point, I think. I will try some this weekend out of a .22 and a 9mm. I will put a point on some and blunt the others.
