    I always grabbed the Agfa cassettes from the mini-lab trash can (after asking, of course). They were always the easiest to open, just a little pinch and pop off the rim with your fingers. A much better alternative to the plastic reloadables (in my opinion).

    Not to be too discouraging, but the last time I used reloadable cassettes was during a day off during my tour of duty in Viet Nam (I was an Army photographer). I was walking down a street in Saigon and had just gotten what I thought were some incredible street scenes. I had a Leica M3 and was attempting to load a new cassette. If you know the M3, the bottom comes off completely and you have to pull the cassette out from the bottom. As I was grabbing the cassette by the spool I dropped it and of course it hit spool side down. It popped open and all of the images were gone. That was the last time I reloaded film. Just be aware of the issue.
