Contrary to what people would have you believe, a DWV marking on a pipe means very little as to whether it's "good" for spudding.

The main thing you should be concerned about is a pressure rating. If it has one, then it should be OK, if it doesn't - it might still be OK, but it's far more likely it won't be.
A pressure rating takes priority over a DWV marking. DWV is an application, not a standard. Pressure ratings are a standard, which tells you a lot more.

You can use it, and it shouldn't go wrong, but as with any type of pipe, if it gets abused, damaged or dropped, that will compromise it's safety.

And as always I will remember not to lodge any .22 bullets in it. :wink:
