  • Plant tour, How 22 Rimfire is made!

    I think this is machinery related. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_rCZ...ature=youtu.be

    If you can find a copy of George Frost's book, "Ammunition Making", there's a lot of material on the dies for making cases and bullets for rimfire and centerfire production, and shotgun too! A very interesting read on high-production methods, and something for almost any metalworker.

      Since the 22 thread was closed, I have
      to say if more people lived by the advice:
      "don't get caught" there would be a lot
      more people getting arrested and going
      to jail.

        It's on the web as a PDF file.

          I'm not taking a chance on a firearms charge of 5 years a big Bubbas GF & $25K fine. That's why I think the Bumpfire is such a great idea. I have the federal paperwork rolled up in the stock in case someone needs to verify it's legal. I did buy one for an AK & another AR before Bumbfire was forced closed & they need no other part to run great. But the 22 is so much fun & seems pretty accurate in sloomo fire . It didn't need it but I had bought the muzzle accelerator so I put it on today. Are these legal in the UK? I'm sure Boslab could have a ball.

            My FIL lives in Lewiston, Idaho (actually Clarkston, Washington--across the river) and have tried for many years to get a tour of the factory there---same answer always--NO

              Very cool video.

              BTW

              unrelated but your quote from George Washington is as real as

                Like all "Informationals" it's made for the internet generation who don't know what they don't know and wouldn't know it if it hit them in the back of the neck.
                I'd have liked to have seen more information on the case forming process, I assume the rim is made using a hydraulic process but there's Sweet Felicity Arkwright about that! :-(
                If you benefit from the Dunning-Kruger Effect you may not even know it ;-)
