I have wondered about using LR primers for gaschecks.

I seem to recall reading about using spent 209 primers to make bullets for the .25 ACP back in the late seventies. This was back when you couldn't order reloading components by mail, and had to depend on your local hardware store with an FFL to stock bullets.

Corbin makes dies for swaging .25 and or .32 cal bullets from spent 209 primers. The dies are expensive, so before you buy, make sure this is what your wanting.
