    I received some .22 lr rounds from my uncle after he passed. The rounds have swelled and do not operate in any. Of my weapons. What do I do with them?

    Soak them in a buck of water for a week and throw them away

    If I was still 10, I'd do what I did back then and pull the bullets, make a pile of powder, throw a match and see if it goes poof.

    I was easily amused as a child :confused:

    Take them to your local range and they will dispose of them for you.

    We would lay them on a brick and throw another brick on them till they popped. Not only were we easily amused, we weren't very smart! :D

    Pull the bullets with pilers, melt them down to cast other bullets....... It is what I do with all my bad bullets.

    Blitz, I was tempted to use the "like" button on this. How about a "don't do this" button?

    luckily it didn't hit about 4 inches lower and shatter my ankle. went home and told my mom a fell on a barbwire fence and ripped my leg open. looked like i got poked with a little knife. it was just a slit about 1/4" long but boy did it bleed.
