    Who's the best to get 22lr to .224 bullets setup from?

    I'm thinking about trying to make .224 bullets from 22lr and/or 17 hmr cases. I'd like to be able to make all the way up to 77gr boat tail .224.

    I'd like a complete setup, core mold and dies. I have a good press that will work. I'd also like to get them in my lifetime....who's door should I be knocking on for a good but resonably economical kit.

    I was scolding my 5-year old for her and her friends making a giant mess in her room. She said they all did it. So I asked her: If all her friends jumped off a cliff, would she do it too? She said, "Oh no daddy! I would go to the bottom and try to catch them! They're my friends." Man, either I have a great kid or she has a stupid father.

    Bt sniper, bt simple 22 kit. Cheapest most complete kit around and works with standard reloaders.

    BT Sniper here on the forum is by far the least expensive for the quality you will get and will sell you anything from single dies to a complete set-up.

    I echo the same answer: Get the setup from BT Sniper. I have quite a few of his die sets, and they all make what even he considers to be HIGH VOLUME production.

    Me too. Another vote for BT sniper. The little bullets are amazing. Not very happy with the D rimming die but otherwise they're great.

    It would be less disrespectful to burn the flag than to put a thin blue line through the middle of it.

    Your derim die was purchased without the nitride hardened finish. It probably requires a good cleaning every once in a while and additional polishing. No reported problems from derim dies with nitride finish.

    Ok thanks I will polish it up and try again. It took for-ever for brassworld to restock 22 lr so I wasn't able to do anything without brass. Now I have some and can get back to it.
