I had one of these conversions a few years ago.I don't remember the loads, but I used Hornady and Sierra 32 gr polymer-tipped bullets. I had to file off the tip to get them to feed in my 592. Accuracy was excellent, less than 1" at 100 yards, Ground squirrels were DRT, but since the bullets were designed for the .204 Ruger, the devastation/explosiveness wasn't there. I remember Case life was very short, 1 or 2 firings, I was using the cases that were lathe turned as opposed to the ones formed from Hornet brass. Have fun.

Mr Schroeder does not have an email address that is available and I am now totally deaf.

Unfortunately the gentleman I purchased the dies and cases from underestimating the number of cases he was sending so i'm down from 170 to 120 which is a pain but stuff happens.

I have found a thread on cast bullets about forming your own brass from 22 hornet have a friend with a lathe and as I will have the die set I think I can form the cases then have him turn them, just need to convince him he's bored and needs a challenge

It looks like the Berger is ideal and I can get those down here

Well all my bits and pieces arrived today can't wait to start trying the gear, only down side I would say is the rim thickness and diameter are very inconsistent I hope this would be a problem but we will see
