Wonder what the velocity on a double charged .22 is... :confused:
Now is the time for all good men to get off their rusty dustys...

In which direction? The velocity of receiver shards is not something I want to measure up close.

On a bolt gun, probably a little low with all that gas lost blowing the extractor out. Wonder what the velocity of the blown extractor would be?

Thanks for posting this... I have two 500 round boxes that need to be replaced.

Guess I don't have as much 22LR as I thought. :dunno:
