    Trailboss is the only suitable powder that you list. Overall length is CRITICAL. 1.600 MAX LYMAN#454424 will hang up on the front band going into the chamber. You would have to crimp over the front driving band to get a short enough overall...

    That would take a REAL TOP QUALITY GUNSMITH to weld up a bolt face. I saw a few in the early to late 1960's for 222REM, but then most every one switched to the REM 700.
