    22 Magnum Cases

    Do any of you have .22 magnum cases lying around?

    I'm playing around with bullet swaging and would like to try my hand at swaging 6mm bullets from 22 Mag cases.

    Hi Bully. Thanks for mentioning the .17 HMR.

    I was thinking about trying them as well - I'd only have to anneal the cases and expand the necks.

    This might be a good trail run?

    In that case I don't like your chances, often they get split necks from firing, sizing back up probably wouldnt help your cause. I thought they were getting melted down.

    Thanks Guys. I really appreciate everyone input.

    I'm from South Africa, grew up next to the local gunsmith, got involved in shooting and along the way got in touch with some Benchrest guys that were swaging their own bullets. I just had to have my own.

    Ordered me a set or two of 6mm swaging dies and presses from the US. Moved to NZ before the dies were finished and had to stop the delivery, but since we're settled now I've requested that my setup be shipped by next week.(order were placed 28 Feb 2018!)

    Do it myself? I dont really know about that - I'm rather curious and I'm forever busy building stuff. Normally gun related stuff.
