I've just shot a cople dozen rounds loaded with .22 pellet/1gr of RS enforcer/wolf SRmag primer. I'm surprized how acurete and quiet it wos, with little Kentuky windage. I have big bacement, about 20yards wall to wall, so ive set up a bullit trap made out of huge cardboard box full of old magasines, it works just perfect to prevent recochet.
Going down to try some more, it's adictive at the list :D

I was shooting airsoft pellets around the shop using just a primer. Work damn good.

I'll go ahead and let you guys in on a little big secret project we have going in EA :cool:
For lust 2 mo. Jay and i have being working on a conversion for a FSN and PS90, that will allow to shoot a .22 cal pellets, BB's, darts, or sabots, in your bacement or back yard, without desterbing your neighbors.
Well, we've got it :guns: We'll be picking up prototypes tomorrow, so we could put them through the test on sunday.
That is all, at this time, sorry no picktures yet, but we'll have them made wile testing, along with video and chrono results.

Wiat, WHAT?!

So instead of the airsofters trying to be like us, we're trying to be like them?! :lmao:

I'm just kidding. Uh, please count me in if you need a tester :drool: . I go to the range just about every weekend to practice various things; I'll sweat out whatever workout you want me to test for you. I'll even shoot from in between my legs upside down. Honestly.

Sweet, so the conversion will allow the firearm to cycle reliably with super light projectiles!? That would be fantastic!

Ever since I started reloading I've had a set of bullet casts for each caliber I shoot and I make up a bunch of hot-glue bullets and then coat them with liquid Allox and let them dry for a while before loading them up with just a primer. They work fantastic for garage practice and will penetrate 3-5 layers of cardboard depending on how thick it is so I typically just put a bunch of boxes inside eachother to capture the projectiles which can be reloaded several times before needing to be tossed.
My glue bullets weigh in at around 7gr and just the primer kicks them out at 600fps or so. It's more than enough to kill a mouse :) but if you miss you'd better watch out cause if they hit a hard surface they will bounce back and sting like a mother....or so I hear.

You don't know how happy I am right now. I feel as if all the head pains from school has just gone down. I'll try to keep my clothes on :D Tomorrow is range day, let's hope the wind doesn't interfere with certain testings :)

Guys
You can also use a 210 sized shotgun primer, I stick a smooth nail or similar round rod into a drilled out primer pocket and then fill the case with hot lead, let cool, then pull out the nail/rod, (this case length hole directs all the primer force into the base/skirt of the pellet) then recess the case neck just enough to take a sized pellet to fit the bore, the primer pocket is then drilled/reamer to take a 210 shotgun primer. I then make a punch to reach the length of the case to punch out the old primer, insert a pellet and new primer.

I make these cases for every centerfire rifle and TC pistols in the 17, 22 and 25 calibers, at 25 yds the 22 pellet will break both shoulder blades of a sage bunny, I use mine for taking cottontail rabbits when I am sneaking into the calling areas, very quite and does a great job on the CT rabbits with head shots, you have to remember where these loads shoot compared the the regular rifle loads. I taught both of my kids to shoot (Hunter safety) using this method/shells before graduating to the rimfires and up.

That looks like a neat idea. I might make one if I get home early enough tomorrow, instead of the hot lead, I am going to try epoxy.
