I got this idea as I was playing with chamber pressure numbers the other day for the .45acp - a cartridge I reload.

With increased chamber pressures, if there is sufficient powder, there is usually increased efficiency of the cartridge.

That led me to thinking, what would happen if I were to add a dab of superglue to the area where the bullet enters the cartridge of a .22 Long Rifle?

Probably risking a head blowout so I've not tried it.

I don't recommend you try it either.

Probably just a matter of time before I do try it. Probably right after I get a chronograph.

Just curious as to what ya'll might have to say about this practice. Has anyone ever done it? If not, have you heard of anything similar being done?

While I don't claim to be an expert on reloading I'm just a beginner, this sounds like a recipe for unexpected results. A 22LR case is about the thinnest, weakest case you can find. I doubt you want to see what happens with increased preasure. if the amo could be loaded to increased preasure you should bet a manufacturer would be doing it as flatter shooting 22 would be nice. Now as far as super glue goes. why would you want that in your bore? think tht will be easy to scrub out?

Suspect the glue wouldn't stick to the lubed bullet, but I guess it would depend on if the glued dissolved the lube. Then, you could have a situation with bullets going down the bore without lube.

Don't see that it's worth the trouble, when trying a couple of different brands is probably the easiest way to get best accuracy. My opinion.

Josh, while you're at it, take a good pair of Vise Grip pliers and really clamp down on the neck of the case, to give it a proper crimp, which should drive pressures up very nicely. (No...don't really do that. I'm KIDDING! Josh? JOSH?! :eek: )

Nope! I won't try super-glue. There are enough variables to rimfire shooting as is. I see no need to add another?

Feel free to do so at your own risk. Post your results on this board to prove me wrong.
