TAOFLEDERMAUS Published on Oct 29, 2014 We take on a few viewer-suggestions that came up on the first video we showed. In this video, we give a few more reasons why this combination is a bad idea. We take nail gun rounds (powder actuator ammo) and use those to shoot .22 caliber lead pellets with out of .22 rifles.
Curious HOW FAST the pellets went? Do you think we are lying?

Once again we take a look at launching pellets using powder actuation tool loads, or nail gun blanks. This time I'll address some ideas and suggestions viewers have brought up, like gluing the pellet to the blank to speed things up.

Gathering basic performance data of improvised propellant from matchbook powder as compared against a common smokeless powder. I chose a revolver round to avoid concerns of cycling a semi automatic in these early tests. Unique was selected as the smokeless powder to compare against because of its wide range of applications. I feel both 38 special and Unique are "non performance" choices that contributed to a reasonable comparison. The firearm has a short 2.25" barrel, Ruger SP101 357 Magnum. I intend to do more testing with longer barrels (Rifle rounds).
Do not try this. There is not much data out there for improvised ammo and propellants can vary widely. My tests are not really scientific and the data presented here should be considered for entertainment value only. Only you are responsible for your own safety. _____________________________________________________________________
Here I use safety matches, not strike anywhere type. Reloading with ground up matches is not not a new idea but I wanted to see if I could make a functional 38 special round substituting matchbooks for powder and primer. I urge you NOT to attempt this. It is risky and I have not tested it beyond what you see in this video. This is simply a proof of concept that it is possible to create usable ammo with limited resources. This 38 special could just have easily been 9mm or most any other round, with varying powder charges of course. Match heads are corrosive.
The audio video quality aren't great, I shot this on my cellphone spur of the moment. This is just a short video showing you where I get my ammo, and what I like to shoot. I own about 16 handguns one is a 9mm, that I haven't touched in over a decade. Every single other handgun I own is in .357 Sig. I have found that the 9mm +P+ and the sig are pretty comparable out of a short barrel (most compacts), the longer the barrel of the pistols (or rifles, I may put up the 357 sig ar 15 video) the more you probably want to ditch the 9mm in favor of the sig. my usual carry (open) pistol is a glock 24 with a 7 inch lone wolf conversion barrel, chrono average with freedom munitions 1602fps I average about 4000 rounds per month between training and messing around at the range. I do reload to offset cost, but that's a more of a volume issue. Hopefully this will help anyone who is looking for sig ammo that won't break the bank.
I have gotten significantly better numbers than these guys with the same ammo and similar guns, but these guys have some interesting things to say about the sig.
