    No, they'll just pull out. time consuming, but not difficult.

    I've done this once before for some 7.62x54R. If you need cheap and you have spare time, go for it. Personally, I wouldn't do it again.

    Keep in mind also that your link (pardon the pun) is to heavy ball, not the best choice for all rifles in that caliber. This stuff was loaded for MG's.
    If you want to save the work, plus get your ammo for 2.5 cents cheaper per round (unless you really want that PKM can), consider the light ball. http://centerfiresystems.com/AM54R3.aspx (and I've seen it as much as ten bucks a can cheaper recently)

    Time is money. If you have the time it's OK. If you need the money, well, that's your call.....:eek:

    You can get 440 rounds for just a little more $, and not have to worry about de-linking it.

    Of course, if you have a machine gun, it should only take a few seconds.:)

    Not hard to take the ammo off those belts at all.

    All I have to do is feed it through my PKM.

    The U.S. delinking machines are nothing more than an MG receiver hooked to an electric motor. Feed the belts and hit the switch.

    Faster than an MG but not as much fun to use.

    "4 million rounds a day"... good grief.

    At about 4:20 you can see what looks to be SS109 getting moved on a magnetic conveyor belt by their noses. Convenient. :)
