??????????????

This is not a traditional question per say but there are experts here whos advise will be helpful---Im very comfy with load adjustments for blackpowder-----now my kids got 22 cal Cricketts made here in PA as a gift from dad! I love the fact that I can teach them gun saftey with a single shot bolt action gun that fits children! The problem was blowback from my sons gun right towards the eye! I called the co. and they wanted the gun sent back immediately. They sent me a new one right away. Great customer service so far---The problem Im having is they told me the problem was most likely the 22 sub sonic ammo from Remington causing the blow back????????// My ???? to them was how then did it not cause a problem in the second gun??? Also how could sun sonic ammo cause this problem when I could also shoot full loads of 22 short or longs in this gun????????? Im lost???????????? In a traditonal black powder gun I could easily figure this out but they have me stumped ??????????/

Re: ??????????????

Perhaps not enough "oomph" to blow the case out to seal the chamber. All fixed ammo is just slightly under chamber size, or it wouldn't fit. When the gun goes off, th brass/aluminum/copper, steel case is suppose to expand slightly to to chamber, which helps seal the gases. For this reasson many reloaders must "re-size" the brass before loading again. I can think of no reason why the same would not be true for rim fire ammo.

Re: ??????????????

Years ago I sometimes shot with a guy named Ron Griffie (Just passed a few months ago) down near Bowie Md. He owned a company called Deathwind Rifle Works. One day he pulled in at the range on his BMW cycle and with him, he had a really odd gun built with side locks, fancy int'l reciever sights, thumbhole stock, high schuetzen style cheek piece and stock painted very bright metal flake green. He was a character. So consider yourself in good company with that bright colored gun.
