Friend of mine makes these from .22 cases and lead wire. Iknow many of you know about this and several probably make them too, but I don't remember if I ever seen this posted before.

He makes them by the thousands limited by the number of fired .22 cases he can find and sells them on e-bay. Besides loading them for his personal use.

These are hollow points. The base of the bullet measures .224.

You would need to be shooting a lot of. 224 to recover the initial cost of the Corbin kit. Last time I bought Hornady bullets in bulk I paid $14 tax in per 100. For me, not including delivery costs, about 15,000 rounds.

Neat. Bushy, what is the white disk/plate for? Is that a protective cover for you reel-to-reel?
