    Newbie Here

    This is my First post, and I would like to Thank You for letting me stop by.

    My first question is about Ammunition surprisingly enough, I have a Walther P22 recently acquired, and would like to find 22LR rounds for it. That has proven to be very difficult, as every where I go they are sold out. Would it be Beneficial to buy the supplies, and reload my own? That seems like a big expense, for such a small volume of target shooting, that I want to do. Please let me Know some thoughts about this, I am open minded, and would like to learn.

    If you can produce quality .22 LRs by loading your own, you don't have to worry about staying busy. I haven't seen a lot of .22s in the stores, or components to build them lately.

    P.S. Sorry about the sarcasm.

    Unless things have drastically changed in the world of reloading, you can't reload rimfire ammunition (at least not with the fired case).

    Try this...

    You can reload spent .22LR cartridges, but I'd think that an evening of doing that just to shoot them up in minutes would lead to a life of anger management issues. The best thing is to find out who occasionally gets 22LR in stock in your area, such as Walmart, and on what days, and make a habit of stopping there at 6:01 AM or so when they just open that day. The stuff is out there, but routinely sells out quickly. My Walmart got 350 boxes of Winchester 333 Bulk Ammo in one day and sold out by that evening. Also check your local CL or FB pages for anyone selling the stuff.

    Sounds kind of gimmicky reloading a 22, I agree about the anger management issues.

    How would the already trigger squeezed rim be resized?

    There's about 356-degress of good rim left to be used with new priming compound the next time 'round.
