    anybody have any tips on de-linking large quantities of ammo?

    specifically, pakistani 7.62nato which comes in the brown 250ct 30cal cans

    the only way i can seem to do it is by pushing on the bullet tips with the linker tool, and while they don't seem to be moving at all because of the crimp, i don't really like taking the chance.

    any ideas much appreciated

    1. Lay belt into feed tray of favorite 7.62x51 MG.
    2. Operate cocking handle.
    3. Point "de-linker" in safe direction.
    4. Pull trigger.
    5. Separate newly de-linked brass cases and links.
    6. Smile.
    7. Wipe goofy grin off face and repeat process.

    Delinking tips

    Funny you should ask as I'am working on a 1000 rds of linked 5.56 tonight. What I do is take a oak 1X4 board on edge and press the tip of the round down while holding the links in my left hand and catching the round with my right hand. This works pretty easy when you get the hang of it.

    "...Pakistani 7.62Nato..." Pakistan is not and never has been part of NATO. The ammo is of iffy quality too.
    "...pushing on the bullet tips..." Don't do that. Push on the case head. Mind you, a wee screwdriver under the extractor groove part of the link and lift will do.
