Ammo for 3D Printed Guns

Hate the title... but an interesting way around a problem.  The Bullet That Could Make 3D-Printed Guns Practical Deadly Weapons:
"Now an amateur gunsmith has instead found a way to transfer that stress to a component that’s actually made of metal—the ammunition."
"His ammunition uses a thicker steel shell with a lead bullet inserted an inch inside, deep enough that the shell can contain the explosion of the round’s gunpowder instead of transferring that force to the plastic body or barrel of the gun."
"Crumling’s 3-D printing-friendly ammo will serve as a proof-of-concept—and a reminder: If gun control advocates are taking comfort in printed weapons’ impracticality, that comfort gets a little colder with every upgrade."
