Need some help with photos of cartridge types

I need a photo that shows some certain specific handgun cartridge types for use as a visual aid for my NRA classes.

I tried taking some pictures myself, but either my skill or my equipment is lacking and I didn't get anything I could use.

What I need is a single photo that shows the following loaded cartridges in a row next to each other:

(From Left to Right)

Wadcutter

Semi-Wadcutter

Full Metal Jacket

Jacketed Soft Point

Hollow Point

Jacketed Hollow Point

They all need to be in handgun calibers. They do not have to be in the same caliber, but it would be nice if possible.

Can anyone take this picture for me? All I need is a single photo, with one of each of those cartridges, and maybe with their names underneath.

If you can, PM me, and I'll give you my e-mail so you can send me a large file suitable for me to blow up into a small poster.

Thanks in advance.

Why not just fashion a semi-permanent display that you could pass around? They could be labeled and people could understand the differences more clearly.

I actually was able to find some images on the web that I was able to modify and relabel that will work.

I don't normally steal pics from the web, but I figure these aren't for publication and are just for my own use, so I decided to do that after all. I looked earlier, but there was nothing that exactly matched my requirements.

It took some work to get everything I needed and put it in a format I could use, but I think I'm set now.

Thanks anyway.

There was a thread earlier that had a link to an excellent site for 9mm cartridge comparrison. I will see if I can find it.

Claude Clay,

Thanks. If I can't get the images I modified to work, I'll use yours.

I need to go to Kinkos and turn what I have into a poster. I'll know then if the file size and image will work for what I need.

Good to have a back up now though.

Thanks.

You're asking for bullet types, not cartridges, right?

I found these:
http://world.guns.ru/ammo/bullets-e.htm
http://www.firearmsid.com/Bullets/bullet2.htm

The second link has a single pic of what you may be looking for.
