    Good luck getting the bullets out. I would be very concerned with the integrity of the metal on that barrel due to the pressure you have subjected it to. Might be a good idea to replace the barrel if it is cost effective enough or at least have it looked at by someone skilled in both gun smithing and metallurgy. At least that is the route I would take after not one but 4 bullets stacked up. Count your blessings that nothing happened to your hands or face.

    My two cents...a 1/8th stainless rod x 24" (cut to lenght)..sharpen with fine slots as to make a bit..should be almost flat not like a pencil..slow speed with hand drill..clear cutting frequently..done rite wont marr your barrel lands...if you can get a straight insertion from the bolt end, get a 3/16 stainless rod ...dress the edge, of contact end..tap out the lead...If you are "tapping"..might want to drop a bronze slug the barrel bore McMaster-Carr 2-3 days has rod in what ever alloy...made this lashup a number of times to daylight through walls/roof assemblys.....somebody is probablly gonna do both ,drill, and slug it out.....or...... give it to a smithy...love to hear from a gunsmith on proper method....luck

    IIRC I think CB rounds are for pistols only,anyhow the 22 bullets even with four in the barrel should tap out fairly easy,like others said use a 3/16 brass rod,either Home Depot or Lowes has them,cut rod about an inch longer than barrel then make sure gun is held solidly and then start whacking on the rod,I wouldn't worry about barrel damage from the rounds since they are a low pressure round and won't even cycle the action on a semi auto.
    Just think a few more bangs and ya coulda told us how many 22 bullets it takes to fill a barrel full of lead

    Hrm...I dunno about that. I use CCI CB Longs in my suppressed 10/22 all the time. At any rate, I'm in agreement with the other guys on the 3/16" brass rod. I had to do that once with an unexpected squib in my old marlin. I ended up using a mallet to drive it. That was also only 1 round though. I don't know about 4 stacked...that's nuts. Guess you weren't verifying the rounds were on target huh...

    Try putting the gun in a freezer and cooling it down.
    The co-efficient of expansion of stainless is about 6 and lead is 16.
    so the lead will contract more than the steel.
    Then wrap the gun in a towel and give it a good spray of gun oil and try tapping it out with a dowel.

    Most can tell when a new hole doesnt appear on the target 4 times in a row :P

    I'm not sure about that. What if he wasn't shooting at a paper target? I could certainly see myself doing something like that with a rifle if I were shooting at a soda can sitting in the grass or something like that. (we never learned if it was a rifle or pistol, did we?) That is assuming the sound was exactly the same as a normal round. I'd just assume I missed the can or something. Since I certainly don't make a habit of looking down the barrel after every shot, I could certainly see this happening.

    I like Gun's & More's idea of freezing it.. That is actually pretty darned ingenious.

    Knock it off! Son, this spanking is gonna hurt me more than it's gonna hurt you. But if you keep doing this stuff, you're gonna end up in the hospital.

    Seriously though, you ought to Google "squib load." They can be dangerous and I think you're lucky that you were using NO powder .22's. Things would have probably gone bad following even the first shot with a normal .22 round.

    If they are Colibri from Aguilla they won't hurt the barrel. I've taken a few out of rifles and never seen damage. I use a brass jag tip on an old cleaning rod and tap the shortest distance with a little oil.

    Of course the most I've seen is two in a row.
