Has anyone ever used this? It seems like it could be fun, but I'm curious as to how well it works...

Could be fun to use. I wonder if that price is for a pack of those special cases or just for one.


I'd rather have this to have fun with.

I'm pretty sure it's just one of the brass.... I'm thinking if you have the ability to take a .223 shell and size it to accept a 209 primer you can make your own...

cool... but after looking a little more at this site I wonder about accuracy...

http://www.pyramydair.com/site/articles/calibers/

about halfway down where it's talking about .22 pellets..

"The .22 caliber pellet grew out of the .22 rimfire, which, at the start of the 20th century was the choice for most small shooting jobs such as pest elimination. But, a .22 caliber pellet is no longer the same diameter as a .22 rimfire bullet, nor will a rimfire barrel work well for pellets. The rimfire barrel is sized 0.222" to 0.223" across the grooves, while the airgun barrel is sized 0.217" to 0.218"."


I'm not looking for a tack driver, but I wonder if it would cause any damage?

1 primer for 1 pellet? seems like an expensive pellet. 22lr is what? 4cents a round!

Plus i wonder if the lead pellets would eventually block up the gas port in the barrel..

I was looking at the same thing but decided to just buy a dedicated 22 air rifle by Gamo.

Shouldn't be bad accuracy. The skirt on the pellet expands to hit the rifling, just like the Minie ball. The pellets are made of a soft lead alloy so they should have no problem. The tip of the pellet never touches the barrel, it's the skirt that makes contact. I would think it's a good way to maintain proficiency with the AR while not having to go to a range.


BTW do NOT use this indoors, the primer contains lead styphanate which is aerosolized upon firing.

I guess it would be good for people who want to shoot at home but live in suburbia or the city. I could use it for work when working graves or swings and can't use live ammo at night due to the noise. I might pick one up the next time I go to graves especially if I go to the slow side of the week.

but do they expand that much? I also read on their website about skirts seperating from the pellet and causing problems.

also important

"Use in AR type semi-auto rifles :
To prevent damage to the case you must be very careful. There is no projectile to guide the case from the magazine into the chamber. DO NOT let the bolt forward under recoil spring pressure alone! Hold the bolt carrier and let the bolt close slowly to prevent damaging the case. Cases may be loaded directly into the chamber by hand to prevent damage."

Shooting it while working graves? I wonder how many broken lights are they going to find on drug dealer cars in your beat.:whistling:

Couple of thoughts.

On pellet rifles the head of.the pellet most certainly does contact the rifling. It doesn't engage to the bottom of the grooves like the skirt does. Target pellets come in various sizes for this reason.

So I doubt you will get Target rifle accuracy with these.

Also 209 shot shell primer are loud when they go off. I would expect these to bee much louder then a pellet rifle.
