    Does this count ? Way back around 1989 I was a grunt in 2/327 Inf, 101 Abn Div. AASLT. We were out in the back forty of Ft. Campbell, Ky and had just gotten issued the then new Beretta M9's ( I'm still P.O'd, M1911A1's rule). I had some 5.56 blanks a Swiss Army knife and lots of trees. I opened up some blanks saved the powder and measured the blank case appx 19 mm and cut it with the file/saw blade of my Swiss Army knife.The file was used to square up and deburr the case mouth as best as possible. I used the barrel as a case length gauge. Once the cases had been prepped I found an Oak tree got some thinner branches and set about whittling boolits. I just kind of dumped powder back in my cases, pressed in the very snug fitting wood boolits. They worked well out to 25 feet or so. The funny part was around 0200 hrs. I woke up startled because I heard crunching noises by my head, grabbed my flaslight and was face to face with a Bobcat. I shot him in the face. Kilt him to.

    9x19 (Luger) to 9x18 ( Makarov). After fire forming out of my 9 mm it’s just required trimming the case of that 1mm. To date I’ve made about 2000 cases for my Bulgarian Makarov and My Polish P64

    Not much of a change but i turned 30-30 into 32 special for a friends grandfathers gun .
    They were fire formed is all as he loaded with a Lee pound die i was still in high school at the time .
    Last case conversion was 5.56 NATO to .221 Fireball .
    When I think back on all the **** I learned in high school it's a wonder I can think at all ! And then my lack of education hasn't hurt me none I can read the writing on the wall.

    7-30 Waters from 30-30. Was nervous as heck to pull the trigger on the first one.
    Then 256 Winchester from 357. Bought a Contender carbine barrel from a member here and he included a set of forming dies. I had been been using the 256 seating die as a step but the forming dies eliminated ruined cases.

    I have found with the 5.56 (223) neck down cases were ruined (when forming to .221 Fireball, then i removed the decapper neck expander and never ruined another case . The cases were ran in full length , rough trimmed in band saw, neck reamed in sizing die , annealed , then sized decapped and trimmed properly.
