I poached this from the Majormusket web site.
Personally I would have worn a face shield and gloves because this is kind of sketchy, but to each his own.
This may not solve the problem but it may get you back to be able to practice and save real caps for hunting or competition

Actually, that 22 case is a lot stronger than a percussion cap so it should be less likely to have flying shrapnel. I would cut the case with a good pair of diagonal cutters instead of those snips, though.

yesterday I sacrificed one ,22lr just to see. It is a easy as it looked and fit the nipple on my GRR perfectly
My thought is at hunting season this would be better than leaving Old Sure shot in the safe and having to use
an unmentionable. Not for plinking but better this than nothing.
