This is a long video, but facinating. An owner of a Gyrojet carbine and pistol was willing to fire off a few rounds for the video:

Interesting to see if some guy with a CNC lathe and milling machine could make a refined version of the ammo out of mild steel and see if they might be made more accurate and consistent. I know they pour the propellant into solid rockets, so a better quality propellant that was easier to work with and ignite might also be available, though I don't see any rounds selling for less than $15-20 each.

I remember when these came out. They busted a Russian spy trying to buy one at I believe Reeds Sporting Goods in San Jose California. Pretty cool idea but it just is not as practical as a conventional firearm.
Thanks for posting this.
The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom.

Matthew 25:1 thru 25:10 Be ready!

The written word sometimes like poetry is never really finished but merely abandoned.

I live alone in the middle of nowhere with two dogs and a cat, what do you think about that.

The wind blows, the rain falls, the flag snaps its bravery in the dark as two dogs boil for attention at my feet.

Of course it is a true story. You just couldn't make up something like that, no way.
