    I think Pete was just jokeing about it being shot or that is how I take it anyway.

    Gee those rounds look similar to the SLR drill rounds I used in the Early 90's during basic training......yeh the projectiles on these get very loose after a lo of use, giving that "shot off" look....

    Nice.....

    Oh dear, let me explain...

    As a relatively new member i was looking at old threads and came across Pete's one about the drill rounds. I then posted to give the correct title for those types of drill round, as they had not actually been identified to that point.

    As he had jokingly said about one being fired, i carried on with the joke by asking him how he did it....

    That is my point my friend!

    Satisfied now?
