    Was watching this video on fast shooting a single-action revolver (in this case a Heritage Rough Rider) faster than a semi-automatic pistol, and was taken back by the use of ".22 caliber Ramset loads" as blanks!



    To be honest I have never heard of these things. Anyone ever try them in a .22 revolver? Apparently they are cheap and plentiful at Lowe's and Home Depot!

    Yes, I have 2 ramsets...

    They come in different load levels, too

    Yeah, pretty impressive that some of them can sink nails in solid steel.

    Been many years, red loads?

    They are basically blanks. Until you put something in front of them. Like a nail or a pellet.
    Was some videos of a guy using them and a .22 pellet in a .22 bolt action rifle. Pretty impressive.

    I mainly used them to attach 2x sill plates to concrete... yellow #4 was most common.

    I was using green loads and shorter nails to attach 1x furring strips to a 12" thick concrete wall in order to insulate and put up siding on my house in Colorado. There was a severe drought that summer, and a neighbor came over in a huff to tear me a new one because he thought I was setting off fireworks.

    People get real serious about fire prevention in Colorado.

    I have been familiar with them for many years but all my powder actuated tools use .27 caliber loads in strips.

    Never thought to try the .22 caliber singles in a firearm. Make sense though.

    Yep...

    Might have to give them a try in my Heritage Rough Rider. I really don't see much need for a .22 blank, but I'll still give them a try purely out of curiosity's sake...

    Seem to recall using the green or yellow to mount 2x4's to concrete slabs.
