Default A rvolver?

Maybe you could get on of this an dispose of all that ammo down the range, or use it as a backup, this tool will eat anything .22 caliber

I can only suggest using it up. I am always amazed at the thinking of only cheap or crappy stuff should be used in survival situations. I have seen many people deep into the unknown that had bald spare tires, cheap cheap truck tools, guns and ammo on their last legs, cheap flashlights with dim batteries, and every kind of cheap Wally World survival crap all held in reserve for when SHTF day. I myself cant even imagine NEEDING such ammo and it failing so often. I would use it up and keep the very best for bad days to come. The same goes for all the above mentioned items, only the best for survival for me, it doesnt matter I had to work overtime to buy these and put them into "storage". Just my opinion.

Default Stuck case

In the MKIII, I had to have one of the range officers hunt down a cleaning rod to get it out, all while everyone was waiting for the line to be called safe. Not cool.
I get the same problem sometimes with a mosin plus with soviet era amunition.

The thing of it is, it took a lot of work to get all that varnish looking Cosmoline, I had to use a steamer for the most part, but also, soviet ammo seems to have a thin layer of some kind of varnish, as the barrel heats up, it melts it and residue starts to accumulate, the Poof! a stuck case

This however worked for me:


Plus the help of a cooper brush to clean the chamber, it'll last for about 50 rounds before it happens again, My two cents.

Take it along to the range and use in a bolt action - if you have one, or just use it for some fun plinking at a rock or some other target. And as also posted, stash it and use it when all else is gone or fails. Ammo doesn't wear out very often unless contaminated with something like WD-40 that gets around the lead and into the powder. I have ammo 30 years old that shoots as new. Store indoors or anywhere to avoid super hot (120 degrees +). Cold won't affect it at all.
