Open a few .22 shells and dump out the powder, then fire the empty shell into the powder igniting it with just the primer.

Use your cup to boil the water in, once you have a good fire


it would just blow your powder everywhere. the slight bit of pressure from the rimfire cartridge would be enough to scatter your powder you think?
you are correct. best thing is to keep a magnesium fire bar on your keychain or always on you.
getting the right tinder is the key to starting a fire. the smaller the better to catch a spark.

It does blow it everywhere, but if you have a backstop and keep your gun at the right distance away, it will work. It took a while, but i did do it once.
If i only had a few shells, i would probably not try this method.

find a blowdown tree and pile brush on top of it. easiest fastest shelter besides a cave or rock overhang.

30 days could make improvements on it. make a raised bed out of saplings. construct an a frame type shelter. first night main thing is cover . then you can work to improve the shelter. I wouldn't try to construct some elaborate shelter the very first night. cover and fire would be my main priority the first night.

I spent 36 days straight hiking a section of the AT. It was a little tough even with a backpack loaded with gear.
