How to prime a 22 LR Case -- Anatomy of a 22LR Cartridge
 
Some have figured it out better than others and some facilities better than others. Both are unfired randomly selected out of a box.

How to prime a 22 LR Case........ Part 3

Through the generosity of hlou650 on this board, I have been supplied a wide variety of 22 ammunition to section, photograph, and share. A friend has completed the sectioning and I am working my way through the photography and posting. There are ten different in this group and there will be several more groups in the days ahead. I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Using two pairs of pliers with 0.22 diameter ground holes, the bullets were worked out of the end of the cases and the powder dumped. The unfired case was held in a collet chuck on a lathe with the rim about 1/4 inch from the face of the chuck. The lathe was not turned on! A fine cut mill file was used to open the side of the case. The strokes were long, slow and deliberate with leather gloves and safety glasses in place. If the primer did detonate, the manner of holding the case and the file in place prevented any damage. None of this batch of cases detonated. Your mileage may vary. Recommend you do not try this at home.

The unknown .22 short (post #3, 2nd pic) looks like it may be Sears brand.

Why not show a video or photos of this process?
Just wondering, if the collet was holding the rim of the case, how did you cut the rim without the collet being in the way?

First question, by conscious choice.

Second, the collet was not holding the rim. The collet was holding the body of the case and the rim protruded about 1/4 inch out from the face of the collet.

Kitsap, thanks for posting. :bthumb:

In the first photo, what is the crud in the bottom of the Eley Sport case? Is that priming compound?
