Anyone ever think of a way to use these if 22LR ever becomes scarce.
You can find them at lots of hardware stores.

If I'm gonna prep .22LR I'll buy .22LR, they are cheap enough. Most people I know have brick upon brick of them.

I am no McGyver, but I don't see a practical use for them other than to power the ramset. But that maybe reason enough to stock up on some.

The ramset can anchor wood into concrete pretty effectively, maybe to barricade doors and windows?

Over at the rimfirecentral forum - I just asked this --

Will a .22 blank from my power nail-er work in my 10/22

Any difference in powder foaling ?

I got a few birds I wanna scare a little-bit

This was the best answer I got

They're short and foul chambers badly. The brass is also thinner and they have a tendency to stick. I wouldn't use them in a semiautomatic.
