    Saw that in the late 70's,, handled a few of the projectiles and they looked pretty good.. Never got into using them, But, the way things are going, might be a thing that comes more into play......

    That's a neat trick, I would probably jump all over it except for the $600 cost of tools. I can definetely see some serious advantages if our second amendment rights are further violated.

    It would do in a pinch...but like the others said...$600?! :crazy: Plus, you gotta use up a bunch of premium .22 ammo to have cases worth starting with.

    My main question is...even though it is possible, cool, and could come in handy...how would a brass jacket affect a barrel in the long run. Isn't brass harder than copper? Seems like it might ruin your barrel in a short period of time, but I don't know.
