    I thought everybody already knew this. #4 wall anchors, to be precise.

    WARNING

    I went to Ace Hardware and bought some of the Hillman 4 - 6 - 8 x 7/8” Anchors. The rim dia. was smaller than the dia. of a .22LR and the rim thickness was much thinner than a .22LR. When ran through two different guns, I didn’t see any firing pin impression on the anchor. In most attempts, the extraction in both guns failed. Looking at the videos, the Crown Bolt/Everbilt Anchors seem to have a thicker and larger dia. rim and might be a much better choice for snap cap applications.

    What you have must not be what I have as my 17 and 22 cal stuff strikes the yellow ones every time leaving an imprint
