    I'm selling a .22 and the last time I shot it I was using Super Colbris.

    A potential buyer asked me about the bore. This morning I shined a light down it and was puzzled because I didn't see anything.

    Turns out there was a round stuck 4 inches from the muzzle :o

    I'm glad (1) I didn't shoot it again, and (2) that I check. I always check the chamber but I never thought about this. Just a heads-up to anyone shooting fairy loads.

    :rofl: Most likely it would have just pushed the other bullet out, but it may have bulged the barrel.

    I never thought about it because when the 8mm or 7.62x54r goes boom, it goes boom, and it damn sure leaves the barrel :o

    So it went bang, it went bang, it went pfffft, and you put it away? Odd.

    I always clean my weapons after, so I would have found it. :o

    They sound like a cap gun. If it went BANG something would be wrong. There is no load, only primer.
