.22 JGR (again) reproduction


Here are the steps that resulted from my effort this past Sunday to make a .22 JPG semi-rimmed cartridge for the fellow who posted the message to the board regarding the Sportco rifle he has in this caliber. I used 22 Hornet cases, and left the headstamps intact to avoid any chance of them being mistaken for originals. The extractor groove is also much wider than the original, the result of my not taking the time to properly shape the tip of the cutter. I was surprised at how simple the process was once I had messed up 8 or 10 of the Hornet cases figuring how to get them necked properly.
