Why Guns Blow Up

Putting a 7.62X39 in a 30-30?!?!? mutter mutter grumble (walking briskly away from the scene...) OK the operational words here are NO, DON'T, and READ THIS. And be careful out there.

That's sad. That was a sweet little Derringer.

Personally, I am impressed with the part of guys hot loading the 22 magnum rim fires.  Dumb, dumb, dumb.  Damn that's dumb.

When I first heard about rimfire wildcatting, yeah, that was my thought too - dumb, dumb, dumb. I've been away from shooting for about a decade and now this .17HMR is all over the place.

In my "evil pellets" experiments, I pullled apart a CCI mini-mag .22LR, and found so little actual powder in there that you could probably put 20 loads in and stick the bullet back on, and watch the fireworks, blood, and gore when someone tries to shoot that round. Ouch.
