    22 mag/17 HMR hulls for 257 jackets

    Thinking about using 22 mag/17 HMR hulls to make jackets for 50/85grain bullets for 25/20. Not a high velocity round, should work. Anyone tried it or have thoughts good or bad.

    look under the vendor section for everything he sells, get ready for sticker shock but his service and support are second to none. he will do a brass sample that makes it real simple to set up the dies.

    I've done it with a set of 4S dies, but Eventually I just ended up using copper tubing instead, a 50' roll of tubing make enough jackets to last me a long time.

    I would love to go there but I am hooked on so many bore sizes I would be like a “pair of eye balls on a stick” in no time!

    That said I have been saving all my rim fire casings for a coon’s age ..... just in case
