    A trifling detail. lol

    Oh, found this.. don't sound like fun.

    "An effective rimfire mix can be made by gently removing and crushing the tips of "strike anywhere" matches, then adding a little hot water to make a slurry thin enough so that you can drip a bit into the bottom of the case, then spin the case on an appropriate sized dowel or drill rod to centrifuge the priming slurry out into the rim."

    I'm guessing a lot of work for a lot of miss fires

    No need. I'm sure many here can reload 1000 9/38 for like $30.

    I'm just the messenger folks and dabbling in the world of reloading.
    It does seem a bit labor intensive though for a round that will be shot so quickly that the novelty would soon wear off.....

    I guess if you ever wanted a legit reason to waste time on .22LR to the point where the wife almost calls you in as a missing person.

    Let's see, it would take 10 hours to reload 500 rounds. Your time is worth something, say $20/hr.

    Not quite my cup of tea. I'd rather pay the knuckle draggers who jack up prices so my son can't go shoot cheaply than reload that ammo.

    My wife thought I was nuts when the opportunity to buy 100 bricks of Federal Target ammo for $10.00 a brick was offered to me.
    I can now show her a YouTube video on what it takes to make 50,000 of them, one at a time.

    The video a the link below seems to confirm your suspicion. They have a measuring tool, a crimping tool, a tool to scrape out the old primer and a tool to pack in the new primer, but I see no tool that removes the dent from the firing pin. They don't apparently get around to mentioning that in the video either, just so happens...

    After making 100 of them, I know what I'd use the 101st for.

    They make pretty strong pellet rifles these days. I'd go that way, perhaps even to include swaging/casting your own slugs. nah (unless it was 9mm or something)

    224 bullets are hard enough for me to place,let alone a shorter one.
    Heck the commercial machine is only a cool mil.

    Interesting why I have over 10k in 22LR, I am curious how does one reuse the rimfire part that indents when struck ??

    This has been posted before, but my opinion remains the same - except in the case of an SHTF situation where I really need more ammo, I don't see this ever being worth the time and effort to do. Too much work for too little reward. But, keeping this around for a serious ammo shortage, etc. may not be a bad idea.
