    I'd like to see that. I'm always amazed at that process but I havent seen it done with a rimfire type case. Very cool none the less.
    I carry a .357mag because no one bickers about the .357mag being "enough".

    +1 Those are fun to shoot the 22tcm does sound interesting.

    That is how Fred Huntington, founder of RCBS, got his start. Here is a write-up of the process of making bullets from 22lr brass.

    When you have to shoot, shoot. Don't talk.

    Just thought I would update this thread...

    Both Hornady and Lee are making dies for the .22 TCM. The Hornady ones are currently $91 and the Lee ones are currently $75 at Ammo Supply Warehouse. The way I look at it, I would shoot my .223 brass until the neck splits, then convert it to .300 AAC, shoot that until the neck splits, and then convert *that* to .22 TCM. If you reload, it really doesn't matter if the ammo is not widely available since you can convert your own from .223 brass. I've been meaning to get one of these RIA handguns for awhile. I have their 10mm M1911 and I like it. I'm more interested in developing a load for the Lee 55gr .225" (C25-55-RF) mold though. Well, that plus converting the 9mm barrel to 9x23.
    When you fill out your income tax forms at the end of the year, look and see how much money you have given the government throughout the year. Then, take a moment to ponder -- has the government done $X worth of stuff FOR you or TO you this year? I tend to believe the latter...
