22 WMR/ 22 Magnum and 22 WRF Reloading Kits

A box of 22 Magnum cartridges is now quite a bit more expensive than a box of 9mm ammo.  And in spite of this price escalation 22WMR ammunition is pretty hard to find and the range of loads available is very limited.  You can’t, for example get a load to push a heavier than average spire point boattail bullet at subsonic speeds – even though such a load would be highly desirable in some hunting situations.

For these reasons and others people have been reloading 22 Magnum and 22 Winchester Rimfire (WRF) cartridges for quite a while, using plentiful cheap .22 hornet type projectiles and fast fine grained powders.  Priming is done using the white parts from strike anywhere matches or the Armstrong’s Mixture from kids toy caps.

Nobody has made specific reloading tools for this work until now.  We make and sell a special full length sizing die with ram insert (used in the upstroke sizing operation) and a matched drift used on the (used in the downstroke sizing operation) for driving the sized case out and removing the crushed area of the rim.  With this tool set - and set of Lee 25 ACP dies that you purchase separately and modify slightly - you are all set to easily and consistently make any 22 Magnum and 22 WRF load you want – at pennies a shot. There quite a few important tricks to know.  We provide a knowledge base free of charge to buyers of these kits.  It is accessed by a password protected site.

Our 22 WMR/ 22 Magnum and 22 WRF reloading kits cost CAN$ 125, plus shipping - not including the necessary Lee 25 ACP dies – which you buy separately yourself.
