If you look inside the round you can see the propellent.
And again if you look or had looked inside it you'd see it is a seperate projectile. Its obvious you have not looked closely,,it is live,,it does cycle.

im pretty sure he means that it cannot be a live round with out gun powder. Does the projectile actually separate from the casing? I was going along with the live round thing until it was obvious you might not know what live round means. Live round can be simply described as: can be loaded into a live firearm and then fired. This is essentially just a snap cap, as it doesn't even cycle a weapon (for gas piston operated weapons).

To make sure there is no posible chance of any kind of dirivination i a going to re draw this file from scratch. Thanks.

Is this a derivative of my model i have on Thingiverse? Thing:11732, .223 round.
I'm offended you didn't check first. You also wasted your time.

Your model is choppy and incomplete.

No its not a derivative of your model. Mine is nothing like yours. Also yours is not a complete live bullet ready to fire. There is no need to be offended. Also my time is mine to spend. Getting such reaction shows the art to be validated. I believe my model to be complete. Thank you.

but, my printer doesn't print gun powder.... or primers... The casing and bullet I understand but uh, how about the propellant?

This is a stl file for a bullet not how to set up your printer.
