Disassembly or "sectioning" of ammunition requires considerable skill, a thorough understanding of the exact nature of the cartridge to be worked on, strict observance of all applicable safety precautions, along with patience and good judgment.

The IAA STRONGLY recommends that individuals not attempt to section or otherwise disassemble any ammunition. Leave that to the professionals.
