Re: This reporter could make a box of kittens sound sinister.
My dad scared the heck outof me when I was a kid by throwing 22s in the fire. But as Biff said; a little puff/pop and some ash gets thrown around. Since them I have put some 22wcf in a fire with the bullets against a flat rock. After they popped we siffted the bullets out of the ashes and they weren't even deformed. It's still hadr to get over the idea though.
Another thought...that was all with brass cases...I wonder if it would be different with the nickle casses like "Stingers" have?
