Any one know a good way to iron out a 22RF, chamber? It has a buldge in it from dry-fireing, I have never done one so any help is welcome.

Brownells offers a tool for removing such dings. http://www.brownells.com

Yea, I know Jim. It's just that I hate to buy something that in 20 years I never had a call for, till now.

I always used a .22 chambering reamer, but a drill of the right size (turned by hand) or a rat tail file will work OK also. If you want to try to pound the metal back instead of just removing it, insert a piece of drill rod or the un cut end of a drill into the chamber and tap the side opposite the firing pin dent. This will straighten it out unless it is really bad.
