Is this guy just pulling bullets and reloading them with a more consistant charge, or is he actually reloading 22lr cases with new powder and bullets? If so where would a person find 22lr ready primed cases to do this with? Is he casting his own bullets also?

PS: TSX I like the new Avatar.

Edit: I went back and reread the arctile and he is pulling and reloading with different powder,  Interesting read.. Not sure what he is tring to accomplish.?? maybe someone else could help me on that note?

He says he re-primes with an unstable mixture.

He says most rifles don't have the twist or length they need and that is what he is triing to do

its easy you take a .22 blank i use .22 nail gun blanks cut the crimp off in my case thay aer necked down to .17 cal so if you
just cut the crimp off you ncan make a new .17 short  tongue but if you cut the neck off you have a .22 short case and then
i take a gamo .22 RB or a #4 buckshot and pit it in the case with a samll bit of powder im going to make a vid on this soon


or ive done this and it works ok take a shot .22lr case and tap the dent out and take the white tips off strike anywhere matches
and make a paste out of the white tips only and let dry. take the red tips off or use a samll bit of powder and then take a
gamo .22 RB or #4 buckshot and there you go

A very interesting thread!!!

I have wanted to start a thread on reloading .22LR specifically. Just like that other guy said, "the question is why?" for me it's all about accuracy and besides, i love working with guns and reloading and making my own boolits.

Since this thread has started... i have a phew questions though. How can u size the cases and seat the the bullets in a normal press (meaning which dies to get ect)? and another question is... is there a mold to make your own 30gr. boolits from ?

like i said in the above post and no you cant resize the case you have to use it in the gun that fired it
or use blanks but you dont need a 30gr bullet i use #4 buckshot or gamo .22 RB
and like i said i will make a vid soon

I think I'm going to stick to factory ammo and my hollow pointing die. The precision 22LR ammo available is plenty accurate, probably more so than anything you can load in this manner.

If I choose to mess with reloading a small .22 round, I will buy a .22 Hornet or K Hornet. Simpler, safer, and probably more gain involved as well.

I can understand why someone would do this if they are trying to wring every bit of accuracy one can out of their rifle.  But I don't think that it is for me, I shoot 22's for fun and am more than willing to accept the factory accuracy. 

But I would love to see this done and someone fully explain it and show a before and after to see if it is indeed more accurate.

if you cant get ammo this in a alternative i like doing it becuse i make my own bb caps as you may know there not than easy to get
i cut down a .22 blank to .22 short and i have a scoop that i made out of a .22 case and use the blank powder
ive made what i like to call a .17 short if you just un crimp a blank take out the powder take a 11/64 drill bit put it in side the neck
there already necked down to .17 cal but you need to smooth out the neck from the crimp scoop with the same scoop for the .22 short
put a .177 pellet of some sort in the case now dont try to use the .17 short in a .17 hmr not the same size case the
.17 hmr has a .22 mag case necked down to .17 cal the .17 short has a .22 lr size case necked down to .17 cal
i used this in a homemade zipgun that has bin destroyed it had a .177 barrel i just made it to see if i could do it then cut it up
affter i played with it a bit

How can i get a hold of a .22 hollow point die and how do u use it if u don't mind me asking? I normally get CCI Sub-sonic HP for my .22LR but those are very rare nowadays... I can get a lot of sub-sonic (without HP) easily, but i need to have the HP to cause good damage if i shoot vermin.

Thanks camerl2009!

I also found a much more detailed report about the Paco Kelly’s .22 ACU’RZR tool. This guy says that with this tool, even the accuracy will improve. You basically need to chronograph each type of ammunition to find out which one has a more consistent load and then use the Paco tool. It basically shapes the bullet to the correct diameter, which in return gives a bit more pressure and velocity, because the bullets fit more snugly with the barrel.

I know it's a bit long for some to read (like me... lol), but very interesting!
