Surplus/Cheap .50 bmg bullets for dummy rnds

Hey guys, I dont reload so I have two questions. I have a small belt of .50 cal brass linked left over from a shoot. I would like to replace the bullets for display only.
1. How hard or how much pressure does it take to push a bullett into spent brass? I do not have the equipment so I would have to jury rig something.

2. Where can I get 20-25 cheap .50 bmg bullets. I don't want to spend a lot on a display.

Try Poly Gun Bag or Watsons Weapons, you can also try Pat's Reloading.

The dogs of war never compromise,
No time for rearranging.

1. Very little. However, the case neck will have expanded upon firing and may not hold the bullet securely. A bit of scotch tape can fix that.
2. You're unlikely to find any cheap .50 cal bullets. Plus the .50 BMG round uses 750 grain fmj bullets. However, this site has/had 20 match grade bullets for $25 that might do.
