    This post is not technically reloading, so I apologize if it's considered off-topic.

    Anyone know where to find/buy displays of dummy cartridges (no powder, no primers, just bullet seated in a shiny brass case)? Maybe something like a dozen or so center-fire cartridges? I know that I could build that out myself if I had all the cartridges and bullets, but I don't.

    I'm thinking that I might like to have 2 of such critters: one of them framed that I could hang in my man cave for decoration, and maybe another non-framed one that could be used for demonstration (show-and-tell) and educational purposes.

    Desired cartridge calibers would be: .223/5.56mm, 7.62x39, .308/7.62x51, .30-06, 8mm Mauser, .30-30 WCF, and an assortment of other (not too exotic) cartridges. Ideally, each would be labeled and they would be shown in order (left to right) of shortest/smallest to tallest/largest.

    Many thanks!

    Something like this is all I am aware of.

    Years ago, Winchester & Remington/UMC used to put together such displays from time to time, but they don't anymore.

    I just collect em as I find them at the range looking for brass. I pick up any loaded round I see on the ground. I have 30 some cartridges in my reloading room ranging from 50bmg to 22 short
