    Watching the video made me sea sick. Awfull lot of work to make the case and I'd worry about neck thickness surprised that neck reaming isn't needed.

    I've made 218 Bee from 32-20 and 256 Win from 357. Both are like actually working and NOT FUN. 22 TCM from any 9mm or 223 sounds like a whole lotta NOT FUN.

    Ammo Supply Warehouse has new brass.
    It is $17 a hundred. Cheap enough to get your project started.
    Even cheaper if you buy more.

    If you are set on forming it from something else it is just time and effort.
    I am sort of interested in the cartridge myself. Being so short there are a lot of firearms it might be used in. Cheap fun to shoot too.

    I would suggest that you buy brass if you can get it for 17 cents a piece. I think it would be easiest to form from 7.62 x 25 which is not all that hard to find.

    I guess if you like the chore and want to save money you could use .223 brass.
