That oughta be good for about three feet of flame.
With 220 gr bullets, it'd be a handful.

I believe the original loading for the .303 was something like a 220gr back in the day.
The Brit's got to bitching about the recoil....the Germans had the 8mm with a lighter, flatter shooting bullet....so, the Brits adopted a lighter bullet load, probably the 174gr you mentioned. No shame, we did the exact same with our 30-06 went down to 150-148gr rounds.

I did like the "can".... ;)
I bet it gets "hotter than a $2 pistol"... :)

Here's a lovely story about a man turning a shovel into Ak-47:

Book marked under Zombie apocalypse (and Obama apocalypse should it come first)! ;)
Now we have demonstrable evidence that if you try to lead from behind, eventually the guys up front will stop looking back for instructions.
