    Wow! I appreciate all of the information this thread generated. It is really interesting using the spent casings to create the next caliber up.

    I think I am going to tackle this endeavor this year and see where it goes. I am particularly interested in the calibers I mentioned and now have a reason to keep all those .22 mag casings laying around.

    I absolutely love what reloaderFred said in the above post....Sometimes you find there isn't just darkness beyond the boundaries, and sometimes there is. You don't know until you try.

    In this day and time I think we as enthusiast must step outside the box and challenge ourselves with that darkness.

    I have not been engrossed in reloading for more than a decade. The end of last year and the storm I seen coming made me go through all my equipment and supplies I had stored from the last move. I have managed to reload thousands of 5.56 and hundreds of 9mm, .45acp and have many components left for .38/.357 .41 mag, .44 mag and lots of rifle in .30 caliber.

    So after getting back into the groove and trying to acquire supplies this endeavor took form. Again I appreciate all the input.

    There is a pretty cool thread on arfcom about it. If I had more time and money I'd like to give it a go.

    ETA: Arfcom is well, arfcom. So not necessarily safe for work or young eyes.

    I watched the man and his wife make the world's 19 cal bullets at Calhoon.
