Ramset .22 Caliber ?

I've just walked by Home depot today and I saw these things that looked a lot like ammo, I took a look at it, it said "Ramset .22 Cal, Keep away from childreen, heat ,shock,etc,etc,etc, somthing about powder tools. Apppearantly it was for a nailer. So I just just had a question, how do you use it, and can it be used in firearms (such as a zip gun) that accepts .22 caliber cartriges?

Yes you can . with cleaning , the white tip off matches ground up & or the powder from cap gun caps & one drop of acetone to make a paste to push into the groove inside. let it dry & load charge & press in projectile.

I want to use them as detonators in anti aircraft gun. 30 mm

The old nail gun I have uses those rounds, but one has to whack it with a rather hefty hammer while holding the nail "gun". It is fairly unwieldy and I assume they make them better now. I welded an arm on the side of mine so I could whack it, and if I missed I didn't break my arm (experience talking).

You mean the one like this?

Yep, maybe a bit bigger, but that is the idea. Mine was Soooo loud it deafened the person using it.
I used one with a trigger. Much better than using a hammer.
That would have to be more accurate and easier to use I am sure. Mine however was on sale *blush*
I made the same mistake. I thought that I saved a few bucks with the one that you strike with a hammer. Let that be a lesson to all of us! We get what we pay for.
I got it when I was about 17 or so, and have used it like twice. So for me, savings were helpful. I definitely learned NOT to have a partner help hold the hammer while striking it (I did not hit her, but when that .22 went off in her ear.....well I am certain you know that she refused to help me with any more projects *sigh*
