You asking about loading .22 caliber BP rounds.

------------------

Order some bullets from North American Arms.

These will be healed bullets.

 

Pull the bullet from your standard .22 rounds and put aside.

Dump the smokeless powder in to a small glass bowel which you will latr dump around your rose bushed and water right away.

Test the volume of your cases with fffg bp.

I don't remeber how much it is. (Maybe 2 gr fffg)

You know the standard 1/16" compression when bullet is setted.

Once you have powder in the case, take one of those healed bullets you bought.

Put a drop of white glue on the lower part of the heal.

Slip in to case while turning the bullet to spread the glue.

Push down until the heal bootms out.

 

Let dry over night.

 

Mark the rounds with a black felt pen on the bottom of the case so you know what they are.

 

You now have .22 caliber rounds.

My rounds had no problem going through a pine 2x4.

So do not think this little things are not dangerous.

 

Be safe.

 

Safety note:

When you dump the smikelss powder out, the bottom of the case is usually white in color.

Do not try to take it out thinking is some sort of wad.

It is not. (I had burn marks around my safety glass for some time when the white stuff (Primer compound) went off when I tried to remove the "wad")

Eyes are open, revolvers are ready as soon as she can wear a belt.
