    Great article on rimfire resizing and bullet comparisons


    Here is a link to a virus free PDF file which goes over a lengthy controlled test of the 3 major .22 non magnum rimfire resizing dies. Waltz, DRock and Paco Acu'Rzr. I phrase their intended usage that way because they will work on not only .22Lr but .22 long, short and even CB's. depending on the length of the nose punches.
    These guys have been dealing with rimfire shooting for years, testing $$ cost of ammo vs resizing dies on cheap ammo vs weighing/grouping. This report is only about the value of using resizing dies, but interesting to read for those quiet days at work

    Don't think so.
    I have the Waltz die and it is very well made.
    I use it to hollow point CCI standard.Is it worth the time vs cost of CCI factory HP,that depends on what value your time vs the fun of tinkering.
    No improvement in accuracy but much better on game.

    A fun article to read. I'm looking for some plastic tips to go into/onto CCI Velocitor HPs. But yes, not worth the time...

    There were some air rifle pellets (.22) that had a bb (.177), steel or copper, whacked into the HP. Looked gimicky so I couldn't say how well they do. Could be worth a try...
