    Keith replied to a thread Who likes 22 Short? in Rimfire Area
    I read somewhere recently that shorts are getting phased out. They are already getting hard to find here in Oz. One of our club members just bought a target pistol chambered for shorts and he is worried he bought a lemon. I guess it could be...

    I did the same thing. Sized down some 45-90 for a home made 40-90. I did not anneal, I lost a lot of cases just like that. I have not shot it since but I have 100 sized new cases that I will anneal now but it may be too late. We will see. Must add,...

    I drilled a hole in the back of an old case, put the bullet it the case and poke the rod in there to push the bullet into the lands , then mark the rod. Works for me because the breech end has been drilled. I think its a good mod because all my...
