If you had a lot of time and plenty of squirrels.......it might be a pretty cool way to go. Didn't look long enough to see how many times a case can be reloaded??

Looks like they are using the old style farmer matches to make priming compound- problem here is that they are pretty much un-obtainum stateside due to civil court proceedings many years ago.

There were some articles about reloading other larger antique caliber rimfires along this same vein a bunch a years ago using farmer matches to make the priming compound.

Can't use anything but Commercial Ammo now, eh? It would be nice to be able to load for one's self, like Centerfire folks do, I am a thinkin. Doesn't necessarily mean our quality would be any better but it would be worth doing if we could make em better.

Hindrances are priming, how badly a case rim might be deformed and the little detail of the rebated tail end of a rimfire bullet/ chamber configuration.

+1. Heel bullets in my old .310 Martini are a real bugger to load consistently.

primed cases may exist and be available.

That certainly would simplify things.
