Drill through the closed ends and string loads of them like that - sort of a cartridge snake.

it would take a while because the drill bit would keep overheating.

Would a simple hammer-and-nail work? I don't know how tough .22 cartridges are.

.22 cal. shells are rim fire, so there is no "cap" to punch out of the center (which would make it easier if it did have this), like say shotgun shells.

With a decently sharp bit, and an occasional drop of cutting oil on the shell, it shouldn't be "that" tough (the main drawback is their small size).

Use them for "feet" like in this pot stand: pot stand link (scroll down)

Anyway, the first picture shows one use: The second, the size....

Hmm, a necklace made with them faced the other way (open side up) would catch some of the crumbs you dropped as you ate supper LOL well, probably not.... ;-)

I am working on something now using 5.56mm rifle shells, but the 0.22's could be used in a similar way, you actually reminded me I havn't done that yet and I've had the cut shell on my desk for ages...
