    Don't forget to repeat the magic incantation before firing the first round:


    I have testicles, a vise and a long stretch of rope to tie to a trigger. You think the Manhatten Project happened because of previous tests?

    Make a barrel liner???Rechamber to.17M-2 Jerm has the best answer.
    I was thinking today of making a reinforcement to surround the barrel and also hold the barrel into my action. I can over beaf it up to make sure pressures won't cause a catostrophic failure.

    It would just be simpler to buy a barrel rated for the kind of pressure you are going to make.
    I am afraid we forget sometime that the basic and simple things brings us the most pleasure.

    Throw that barrel away and go out and buy a 22 or 17 cal for a couple hundred dollars & be done with it. It will be a lot cheaper in the long run and a lot safer

    The Confederate army had some Napolean cannons that they wrapped with heavy wire to reduce the occurrence of burst barrels. Of course, when they did burst, anyway, there was extra shrapnel.

    I wouldn't recommend that, but if someone is determined to make a silk purse from a sow's ear, it's an option that might or might not be survivable. But, send the kids to the storm cellar, first. :jester:

    No way man, that barrel is made for about 2-3 thousand pounds max and you're going to ask it to withstand 15,000 to 30,000. You're gonna blow something up. I don't even think a barrel liner is a good idea because what you line plus the liner should both be good for very high pressure. Nope I think you're having sex with the devil doing that.
    Daddy, what's an enabler?
    Son that's somebody with nothing to do with his time but keep me in trouble with mom.

    I am not going to say it is a good idea. Or safe. But no matter what you do, get it on video!

    And notify your next of kin where they can access your dental records when you don't come home after a range session.

    I can't imagine how it's a good idea to put an air rifle barrel on a smokeless powder gun. Call me old fashioned.
    Concealed carry is for protection, open carry is for attention.
