Making your own 6mm flobert in the privacy of your house

Post by indy1919a4 »

So lets say you wanting some 6mm FLobert ammo and you were to cheap to buy a tin for 70 bucks

could you not say get 22 cb shorts.. Remove the bullet.. Remove all that unneeded powder..

Then reload the 22 short case with a lead 22 cal pellet or lead 22 cal bb.. would you not have a reasonable facsimile of a 6mm Flobert round..??

The .22 BB or CB cap would be a better route to take.

There's a reloading kit for .22RF out there! Could you use fired 6mm cases & just buy the extra primer compound to "recharge" them with a 6m slug you made.
