Introduction: Retractable Bullet Pen

About: Awesome Gear I've designed myself.

A buddy of mine is into target shooting. I made this pen for him out of a Bic retractable pen and 2 shell casings.

It’s a very simple project but I thought it was too cool not to share.

    What caibre is that?
    I thought it was .303 Brit at first, but the shoulder looks funny.

    I might use 2 .30-06's from a 1943 box I have.

    I am thinking .303 Brit as well, I believe that the shoulder looks funny because it expanded against the chamber walls upon being fired.

    Yeah, my money is on the .30-30 as well. Definitely not a .308, the casings used to make the pen are rimmed as opposed to the rimless .308.

    I'm guessing 7.62x54R or .30-30 cases. A rebated rim (rim doesn't stick out; has groove between rim and case; designed to stack better in magazines) like the .308, .30-30, 7.62x39, .30-06 etc would be cool for the front case as there would be no rim sticking out into web of hand. Not sure how much of an issue that would be, but it might smooth up the look and feel. The rim on the back looks good and wouldn't impinge.

    Those are rimmed cartridges so neither .308 or .303. .30-30 is possible. The one in front looks larger. Is that an illusion?

    Nice work!

    In my case, I can't use metallic pens. Metal slides off under my fingers.
