Unread postAuthor: super spuder » Thu Apr 02, 2009 3:02 pm

spent shell casings? I found a bunch of 22 shell casings that someone has shot and are empty. After taking it to the hardware store today after school i found they fit nicely inside a 3/8 barrel, and could be made air tight with an O ring in the groove on the back. Has anyone ever tried using them? i figured if i fill them up with cement they should be a good weight and could be used over again.
