    I've had to use a rod to eject the brass sometimes in the bolt action .22LR that I have tested with if I'm using the #2 (brown) loads. I think it is because the nose of the cartridge is star crimped and when it expands, it binds into the chamber with more resistance than the extractor on the bolt can overcome. I don't consider that too big of a deal though. I couldn't find the size rod I wanted in brass locally, so I made one out of steel and put electrical heat shrink tubing over it so that it is fully enclosed and no steel can touch the barrel.
    When you fill out your income tax forms at the end of the year, look and see how much money you have given the
    government throughout the year. Then, take a moment to ponder -- has the government done $X worth of
    stuff FOR you or TO you this year? I tend to believe the latter...

    I have a retriever trainer that throws a padded "bird" the size of the large beer cans. Instructions are to use 22rf loads for a nail gun. I can tell you only use the mild ones the heavier ones could break you wrist and make you deaf!!!

    My dog was not gun shy but ran away on the first shot. It took 2 weeks of conditioning to have her not be afraid of gunshots again.

    So, you're saying that it took 2 weeks for her to go deaf?
