Re: Primer Ignition Starts Bullets Moving?

Rimfire rounds are noted for that. We call them 'squib' loads around here. The cheap stuff seems to be the most suspect. I've had more than one powderless rimfire that I've had to back the bullet up the rifling with a cleaning rod. You can tell by the sound that the obvious has occured. They go psssst instead of bang.

I knew one guy that parked 3 pills in the bore of his target 22.
