    Thats a good idea, Echo2. I was just looking for ideas on how to use the spent brass, instead of throwing it away.

    we use them in a Corbin Mega-mite to make jackets for 5.56/223

    lot of big presses and swaging dies needed for making cases....not to mention a furnace capable of smelting brass.

    making shell casings is quite an involved process...

    Probably would not be very cost effective. But, I'm sure its possible.

    Rimfire to Centerfire?

    I realized the other day, that I probably shoot some 2'000 rounds of .22LR ammo a year, for plinking, small game hunting, and target shooting. And that got me thinking.....Would it be possible, to melt down spent rimfire brass to make centerfire rifle casings?
Working...
