    Hmm. That infers that the .17 cases are Drawn with a thicker base than the upper sidewalls. That would also explain the thicker rim walls. Also, it would also help explain your misfire experiences. Chev. William

    If I remember Correctly from the Reloading .32 Rimfire Thread, PTL case rims are about .045" thick with The case wall about .015" thick. When Fired, the Indent measures about .030" thick so it seems the rim is crushed to the point that the two...
