    Redding does make Hardened Alloy Steel Bushings also TiN (Yellow) coated Bushings, in the size range I believe we can use, with .001" increments of ID measurements.
    The OD is about .500" and the Length is About .375" with prices of $17, $26, and somewhat higher; depending on the ID it seems.

    Some incentive to further develop toward a smaller diameter ".221 Askins Cf" to fit without reaming the chamber of a CF converted Ruger Standard Auto Pistol.

    Love the cartridge and the concept! Hate the name. Sounds like it's directed towards women and little girls. If I owned one I would have to to call it something else. It would be like loving to ride a moped till I got caught on it.lol

    Its a great job on the center fire set up!

    Firefly, stink beetle, man of war, dragon fly, centipede, June bug, dung beetle, flea??? I'm reaching

    Now make me one in a 22 wmr! The hornet is so close to it if loaded down though.

    Well, the Originator of this thread did use his wife's Idea for the name so I guess it is something of a Joint and Coequal effort.
    Ed Corbin and Mr. Eichenburg (sp?) already have 'dibs' on Flea, Dart, Nat, Fly, Ect. names as they used them first fo rtheir Sub caliber creations made from .25ACP, .32ACP, .38ACP and the like. in calibers from .10" through .22".
    The Cooper Centerfire Magnum is a CF equivalent to the .22WMR and I understand Converted .22 Hornet Brass is again commercially available for the .22CCM cartridge.

    As to the other names; have Fun and make a cartridge to use them on.

    On August 9th I completed A California Firearms Purchase required wait and took Possession of a Used Ruger Standard Automatic MKII modified with Volquartsen Molded Rubber Target Grips.
    It is fitted presently with the Standard tapered 4 plus inches Long Barrel and Fixed Sights.

    My intent is to convert a Ebay Purchased MKIV Bolt to center fire to use with this pistol to do development of a version of the .22 Ladybug-Reloader cartridge or possibly an equivalent of the .221 Askins. I am already working on gathering parts for fitting it with an adjustable Rear sight and new Front blade sight.
    After I am Happy with the Developments, perhaps i will see about Replacing the barrel with a longer .25 ACP one and custom magazines to make it into a functional .25ACP Target Pistol.

    I can also switch the Modified MKIV bolt from this pistol to the other Ruger Standard Auto pistol I own to shoot CF .22 Rounds through its 6" Bull barrel this one is fitted with a Target adjustable rear sight already and it has walnut grips for comparison shooting.

    The Purchase took most of my State Income Tax Refund this year, so the work will be delayed for a time while my finances recover.
