    Where I live, you can take it to the sheriff's office and they'll dispose of it for. I usually throw it in the dirt where I'm shooting.

    I have some "apparently cheap" 22LR (rimfire) misfires on hand and I need to get rid of them with out dumping them in the trash and risking them going off in a landfill. I have tried a couple of times to shoot these rounds but no go. I have a tub of 500 rounds to go thru but so far out of 200 rounds fired, I have 20 rounds of duds, so what to do with these duds, safely!
    You don't have to actually take the cartridge apart. Just cut a 22lr case in half at about the half with a pair of high leverage electrician's diagonal cutters, then throw them in the trash like normal.

    22 Long Rifle or 22 MAG - You can also just hold the cartridge case in one hand and grab the bullet hard with a pair of stout pliers and bend it down. That will pop the bullet right out of the cartridge case.
