Having A Bit Of Fun With .12 And .14 Calibers

I made my own brass cases for these.

Easier to work with a big case rather than some tine one can hardly hold in his hands.

These cases are solid, apart from a central hole down to the primer, so powder capacity is not going to be too great, which should not make that much of a difference.

Case is next to a 300 grain 375 bullet, and one is next to a 243 caliber bullet.

These are 14 caliber bullets.

Will try to make some 12 caliber tomorrow.

A friend's old coyote hunting buddy shot a 14 cal for years. He and the gun have been gone for years now!

I'll have to ask again what case it was built on but I think the Fireball.

I'm currently building a 20 VarTarg on a Sako S491. I know, quite vanilla.

Must be troublesome to get the powder trickling
freely down that tiny neck!

Try to look unimportant. Your enemy might be low on ammo.

Will those cases expand in the chamber, or are you relying on neck expansion to do the obduration?

No idea.

It is a wait and see situation when we try it.

Good point about those case expanding to seal.

I know we observe lack of obtuation if we fire-form with a load that's too light. It really deposits lots of soot on the case!

The bullets and cases are BEAUTIFUL so I hope it's an successful endeavor.

Saeed, if you don't mind sharing this, how does your cost of making cases and bullets compare with buying factory made? Also what unit of currency is used in your country?

No idea Bill.

But, I got 6756 FPS from the 220 Swift with a 24 grain bullet today!!!!?

5 shots went 0.7 on an inch!

This is the only reading I got from the chronograph.

This is with 43 grains of H4895.

With 35 grains, I also got only one reading, and that was 4992 fps.

And just for fun, I also made some bullets to try in the 22 Long Rifle Rim Fire.

Yes, I'll echo that "that's very cool" and I'll add, very interesting.

I’m very interested in your results with the .22 rimfire.
I just bought 2000 new unloaded .22 cases and am now trying to decide what I’m going to do with them! rotflmo

One thing I’m thinking is that they could be used to prime a bigger modified case and then, with these special cases, could be used in a switchbarrel without needing to swap the bolt or block from rimfire to centerfire.
Of course, may be just as dopey to switch the extractor as it is to swap the bolt or block.

Huvius, there were some schuetzen guys playing with primed .22 LR brass using FFFFg black powder. That sounded like fun. Think the brass was Aguila, from Mexico.
Saeed, awaiting more of your results, as usual!
