Has any one ever used this?
It would be interesting to know what they are using for Priming Powder.... As commercial ammo is using Lead Styphanate.... And they describe, their powder as a Four Part Compound... Which is NOT Lead Styphanate...
They have a video.
The contents of their 4 part prime sure looks like the raw ingredients for black powder. I see me some Sulphur perhaps.
They were using BP, and scraping match heads for sulfer. Apparently, the first pin strike location just didn't matter.
How can you get the primer material evenly distributed into the rim? Usually they put it in as a liquid slurry and spin it in so it gets in to the rim nice and even. I would be worried that with trying to push it in to the rim manually that I'd get a bunch of misfires.
think I will just keep buying in blocks of x000 until I have my desired proper prepper stash.
If the tool were a snug fit, and the mix a paste, it would fill the gaps. I just don't know how evenly.
maybe something that would be fun to try at least once but I would probably try and spin it in like they do when they make them. Something to think about anyway...
Drill press could do that easily. Or, with a little mechanical ability, one could set up a dozen or more spinning shafts, gear driven from one drill press.
Might just spin the mix up against the sides unless there's a jig arranged to point the rim outward, then things can get interesting ---
Anyway, good for the thought process and experiments, but useless if there's no power to run the press. Neither of my boys (full grown men) would be able to spin that puppy up.
I am in visioning the shells rim down, vertical, on snug steel shafts. Rare earth magnets would hold ever she'll tight to the shaft as it spun (magnet inline, and beneath the shell) entire rig could easily be chain driven and spinners spaced as needed in slots. Would not be hard to set up, and could hang from the drill chuck of the drillpress.
How about making a case holder for a hand router, have the case facing up and inject the slurry into the case in the center using a fixtured syringe type arrangement? might be something interesting to try during a vacation week at home.
Even a drivel would work if you want to do singles and build a case holder.
That's a good answer.
X2 to your first pin strike and I'm wondering how many times the rim can be hit with the firing pin?
This is one of those; I'll let someone else be the beta tester.
I read that page as well & though "TIME " & Small
The downside to this kit is the time and effort involved. If you’re a rimfire shooter who goes out and shoots a hundred rounds on the weekend you’re the person this kit is designed for. If you’re a rimfire shooter with a bullet-hose like the M&P15-22 or a modded-out 10/22 and shoot your ammo a brick at a time you will not be bothered to put the time into this.
I bet anybody living in a country where firearms/ammo are illegal would give his left nut for one of these. Also anybody who has to deal with ammunition tracking and registration (and we are on track for this). It's no different from that respect than an 80% receiver.
Another good use is educating younger shooters. If they have to make each round they just might aim a bit more carefully.
I had just dumped two half gallon buckets of once fired ;-) rimfire brass into the scrap brass bucket last night. I had been saving it to potentially swage into .224 bullet jackets. I guess now I'll go run it through the screens again and put it away. Might be worth something to somebody some day. If nothing else I could use it to patch holes in the driveway.
Cool...once I get my shot/slug/bullet casting mastered, might as well tackle reloading .22 rimfire.
