I made some of these a few weeks ago and they were a big hit with the Marines. I made a few more using sepele and beech. Finish was with CA and it actually turned out really nice this time. Thanks for looking!

manzanitaman-I have tried turning a long time ago, with mixed results (bad mixed with worse). Everything I have late lately has been sense Christmas. The shape is similar to a 7.62 but bigger. I did a glue up of the two woods, using Gorilla Glue in the endgrains.

Thanks guys!

Very nice. Now all you have to do is add a pen kit in there.

Is it modeled after any particular caliber? The bullet seems a bit long in proportion to the the case.

Those are awesome. Can you engrave them? My engraver has the rotary wheel. We can do cylindrical objects easy.

I actually woodburn them if my customer requests it. Big seller when I was on base. A lot if the guys wanted one. Glad you like!
