In firing a new rifle while using Remington Subsonic shells, it would sound something like a cap gun and the hulls would look like they have blow by markings. The rifle shot OK as by looking at some 25 yard targets off of a poor shaky rest. Any thoughts as to what could cause this?

Normal with some low powered/low pressure rounds. Not enough pressure to expand the case to seal the chamber and subsonic rounds would also be quiet. If accuracy is good, nothing to worry about.

I shoot these almost exclusively and only see the blowby smudging in my 10/22 Ruger. All my .22s are bolt actions. Must be a combination of that and what Quack Shot said.

Don, The only drawback to being married is that I have gotten fat and gained 12 pounds since since Jan. 1st. All that good eating and having my food brought to me on a silver platter! Back rubs, foot rubs,clean and pressed clothes, sweets plus being handed a fresh opened beer! I tell you it is rough....why didn't someone warn me. Now I am wondering if my trapgun still fits, I'm so fat right now it's hard to open my eyes!

Now as far as those hulls, I will try some higher velocity 22 ammo and get back with you, Quackshot may be right! Biff

Did you say you were married or dreaming??? I guess I need to trade my .44 for a pair of .22's. It sounds like you have a great partner there. Treat her well

Ah Boys! Marriage is great! Don't know why I waited so long, now if I could only teach her some reloading skills!!!

I shot some higher velocity shells and the blowby was less, still there but less. The gun shoots great, so it's a keeper....like my wife!

Years ago Ponsness Warren came out with a pedal operated system for their loaders...I tried to convince my wife it was an exercise bike. That was a serious mistake on a number of counts!

Keep your mouth shut, remember birthdays and anniversaries, learn the six words that insure a long and happy marriage... "Yes, Dear - I'm Sorry & You're right". Keeping a new Mercedes in the driveway for her to drive won't hurt either!

This is normal...

Bob, I am a trapshooter and as you know it is hard to afford two hobbies, best I could do for my beautiful bride is a Lexus. This will have to do till I can win a big pile of it at the Grand this summer, at least that's what I promised her......maybe a Mercedes with those winnings! She is certainly worth all the love and worship I can bestow as you can see in the picture.

Mike at the pace my life is travelling, I'll be lucky to last for 10 more years! You got to remember it's the journey, not the destination....that's what keeps me going! Biff

Semi auto 22,s like the 10/22 typically have looser chambers than bolt guns and you will see the blow by with those shells since they don't have the pressure to seal the chamber as someone else stated. Just shoot and enjoy!

If you are happily married you are in a select minority. Be very thankful and keep working hard to maintain it.

50% of first marriages end in divorce. Of those that do not, most are not "happy" but stay together for appearances, the kids, health insurance, economic factors, etc etc.

65% of second marriages fail - showing us we do not learn from history and are doomed to repeat the same mistakes.

Married my college sweetheart 38 years ago this summer...I love her and truly enjoy being married. One does, however, have to maintain a sense of humor!

Bob:

Your description sounds a lot like me with one exception. My bride and I are short timers. Mrs. sissy and I will celebrate 35 years of 'happily married' in July.
