Gotta box full of nail gun rounds.

    I got all kinds of random dangerous stuff, cause i like living on the edge. But realistically i don't see why i couldn't just take the smokeless powder out and make actual bullets with these, if i could source some brass fit for the right caliber.

    Allegedly this box got misplaced one day, bad luck i guess. But not really because i made it a point 'misplace' said box. Anyway, they're center fired cartridges with about the amount of powder a .22 has, nail guns are whacky contraptions but they got some oomph that nail is hauling ass out of that thing and we're talking pretty hefty nails.


    Anyway i wanna take nail gun cartridges and make some actual ammo. Possible? Yes? No? Why?

    Also... nail gun cartridge primer, what is it made of? I do believe the powder itself is just regular ass smokeless. Am i an idiot? Probably. Will blow myself up? No. Cause i know SPLOSIVES. EY YO WHAT YALL KNO BOUT SPLOSIVES

    That's right.

    Its a very small powder charge that would be pretty useless for most porpoises. Not to mention youd have to manufacture a bullet that you could seat in the casing and still fire reliably.

    I used to do wires and shit i ain't no construction worker. NAIL GUN. It fires nails instead of bullets. It uses explosives to propel said nails.

    most of them are equivalent to a .22 load

    I've seen people in South America and the Phillipines literally just remove the nail and tape lead balls to the end of the cartridge so it's like mini buckshot

    Yeah but i got lots. My buddy has a lathe i can lathe crap into bullet shapes with a high degree of accuracy. Only alternative really is buying blank rounds online from one of the countries nearby that doesn't give a fuck or buy bullets from some sketchy dude who thinks he's a big time arms dealer cause he got two Makarovs and a grand total of 12 bullets.

    I ain't got no loicense govner.

    Mini buckshot is weird way of saying bird shot.

    I may or may not have bought a fist full of speed earlier today. So while i'd love to fucking lathe some shit right now, i'd like to keep my hands intact. So this thread is for inspiration more than anything.

    im like 99% sure it's doable, theoretically. do you actually have a .22 to fire these homebrew rounds from tho? like, preferably a revolver because i don't see any homebrew round properly fitting in the chamber of any other typa gun. if you're gonna have to slap together a whole ass bootleg gun for them as well then it's definitely doable since the design can get really flexible. gud project for a bored machinist, but like... are you actually tooled up to manufacture something like that?

    thought about slapping together a weird muzzle loader that uses multiple blanks per shot before but im a retard and i'd most likely end up with a frag grenade that blows up in my hands instead of a gun lol

    (also i have no tools and going to a makerspace or whatever to make gun parts seems like it'd be awkward)

    It would be funny if you specifically showed up at some makerspace to specifically and openly make gun parts. You got some ways to catch up to LavaRed, but fuck it. Do what you want. And more importantly what makes you happy.

    Also, i got a real caliber, on a real gun not nigger rigged but soviet surplus, there's a bunch of them round these parts. Everyone always seems to buy two bullets, and figure they're Gucci. And i guess it only takes one if you're a good shot. But you just wanna go into the woods somewhere off the beaten path on a quiet day and go for some target practice, two ain't gonna cut it.

    Theres no way a .22 short can fire buckshot?

    He said mini buckshot. But that just sounds like bird shot to me.

    not proper buckshot, I can't find it now but I've seen where they've just taped little lead balls to the end of the cartridge

    airgun pellets are popular but I guess they're harder to get in some places

    The following users say it would be alright if the author of this post didn't die in a fire!

    Neat link. My rounds are less tall, but that's because the brass is crimped at the end, if i 'uncrimp' it, it fits twice as much powder. I guess the Chinese one uses the cartridge like you would a black powder charge in yee olde musket to fire a solid lead projectile. Looks like it's a breach loaded single shot typa deal.

    Also i'm going to be pedantic, but double odd buck is an actual caliber, you can have a 12 gauge shotgun and have it shoot a nice cornucopia of rounds, bird shot is like BB pellets, double odd buck will take your head off, and a slug, that's just a bore sized projectile, well thereabouts.

    Oh yeah. I mean i could see snakeshot pellets or some birdshot maybe working, but iirc nailgun rounds are equivalent to .22 short. Even .22LR is more powerful.

    Heres the kind of power you can expect

    Yes, but i stole the rounds for the smokeless powder primarily. It's the hardest part to come by in my neck of the woods, that and primer. The pistol i mean to feed is chambered in 9x18, and i hear you don't want to load your rounds too hot when you get that OG soviet surplus Gucci shit. I'm not trying to load more 90 grains per round to start off with. We'll see how that runs. If the gun explodes, consider me a victim of communism.

    If someone could just smuggle some Hornady Critical Defense FTX in 9x18 Makarov to me that'd be swell.
