I was digging around the shop and came across this. It’s a profile of a 50 cal barrel chamber with labels. I don’t know if many of you have seen the inside of a chamber before. So I thought id post these.

What's that hole in the side of the shell casing? Is that where the fuse goes???

I believe it's where the percussion cap goes.

Very Cool. [8D] The hole in the cartirdge case is to "demil" it, make it a dummy. There are probably one or two more holes in the body and the primer pocket (in the normal place, ie., the base) is empty.

And no I dont store my crack in there. Hey stealth you bringing the beer this weekend? You know it is the southern Oregon freedom shoot this weekend. I hope we have a big turnout like last time! LOL Just me and you on a empty range!

Suddenly I know what to do with one of those cheap M16 shear cut barrel stubs on ebay...! I think I'll pick one up and mill it down to make one of those. Better yet...I'll get two, and turn one into a case gauge for reloading purposes, 'cause I'm cheap! CJ

Imagine if it was a live round and you did get it to fire. You wouldn't be getting any more "wood" for the rest of your life. [BD] Ouch, I cringe to the thought.
