    Hello guys,

    Is this method going to be better in the long run then the standard methods of sticking a pellet in a case?

    If using a .223 or 22 hornet, would upping to a magnum primer make it better for plinking squirrels and chipmunks?

    I wouldn't say this is better than anything else. I just couldn't find any .25 pellets and came up this idea that allows me to use .22 pellets in a 25ACP.

    Theres always wax for the projectile too. Pour a sheet of wax the thickness you want the bullet then use the cases to cut out the slug, and prime them. Priming last stops the air lock from pushing the bullet out of the case. I have shot a lot of these in 38 357 and 32.

    What size bullets are you using in your hornet?

    I use .224 55gr spire points. The rifle is a .223 groove.
