    I was sighting in my scoped .22 (fail - the mount was about 1mm off and I could not correct the windage enough until I got home and hit it with a mallet :o ) and remembered I threw a box in my ammo case.

    I loaded them up and was shooting at a target 25 yards away. When the first one went off I literally could not hear it :rofl: I could, however, see the round in flight. That was wierd :eek5:

    They are SO damn quiet. The mechanical noise of the bolt working is louder than the round going off. I think my Crosman air gun was louder. At 25 yards they were just about POA (although I was not seriously trying as by that time I had given up on adjusting the scope).

    Worth a try if you have a bolt action rimfire and want to shoot in the backyard or if you have some birds or squirrels to get rid of around the house.

    I always have a few boxes around. I'll shoot them in my garage when I get really bored.

    The lesson here being, carry a BFH with you, wherever you go.

    Yes, just primer.

    I have no idea what happens if you get a squib. However, if you are outdoors and don't have ears on you ought to be able to hear it hit your target a fraction of a second after you fire :mamoru:

    I take it these wouldn't have the oomph to cycle a 10/22. Could you manually cycle it after every shot?

    Nope, nowhere near cycling. I just manually charge my semi's when shooting this ammo.

    CBs FTW. I used to shoot across my mom's backyard with those instead of going to the range. ~25-30 yards.

    An asshat with a full PM box, that's what you are.

    I tried to forward you a 2002/WRX hybrid, but got teh bounce back.
