    story:
    bought rifle from kid who claims its a 22lr and he shot off 2 rounds fine and got bored with it.
    Came home to find a jammed chamber, okay shit happens.
    Found out the rifle is actually chambered in 17hmr.

    :hsugh::hsugh::hsugh::hsugh:

    Why didnt i check it before hand? I gave it over before i bought it, and i figured for a few bucks, i could have a new firearm to play with.

    wow. I wonder what that does to the bore, it actually fired twice? Seems more likely it squibbed twice and he heard the pop pop and assumed the shots went downrange.

    Somethin like that.
    kid was prbbly out doing shens at night or some shit.

    First shot, jammed the round down the chamber some, casing extracted fine, second shot pressure formed it and again casing extracted fine, couldnt chamber the third round so he had to have put the rifle down and not bother with it anymore.

    :rofl:

    OK I get it. Yeah the throat and chamber on that rifle might be toast. Better have a smith look at it with a bore scope.
