Inside quiet test fire



Log in to see fewer ads
Somewhere i read about a quiet way to test fire inside. Can't remember can, bucket, barrel or tube. Not sure of media to stop bullet, yet may have been roadbase and rags. Pretty sure i saw on rfc, any help or links would be helpful.

Thanks

Someone did post instructions for making a test tube from pvc pipe using sand and rags, I think, to contain the sound and stop the projectile. I use a 7 gallon plastic pickle bucket from a burger joint with a small hole cut in the center of the lid and about half full of sand with a couple old towels on top of the sand. Put the lid on, stick the muzzle a few inches through the hole and fire. Not as fancy or as nice as pvc but it works. BTW I don't know why a 5 gal Home Depot bucket wouldn't work, I just used what I had. TDP

If you just want to see if it goes bang, pull the bullet, dump the powder, load in chamber, point muzzle in a safe direction and if you want real quite, wrap a towel around the muzzle. Not very loud even without a towel.


If you have never pulled a bullet, just grab the nose of the bullet with a pair of pliers (needle nose works good) and hold the case in your with your fingers while wiggling the nose back and forth with the pliers. Bullet will usually comes out quickly.


This only applies to .22 rimfire.
