I just ran across this, in curiosity over another post. Someone has probably listed it before, if so I'm sorry, but here it is again!

ID's boxes, headstamps; even scans of old ammo catalogs.

Interesting and thanks.

A lot better than this dumb idea.
Reloading .22 rim fire.
Why? With the huge number of brands and styles at decent prices
why would anyone reload .22 r.f. ammo?
Thoughts?

That is an excellent site and getting better all the time. I've had the entire listings in PDF for over a year and find that it is really helpful.
If you find boxes in your collection that are not listed there, give the guy an email with a full description and photos if you will. They are looking to update the listings at all times.

You hit the nail on the head with that 22 rf reloading site, maxiball.
Without a doubt, that is about the ultimate waste of time and resources that I have ever run across. But again, somebody had to do it. They are out there with nothing better to do than show their engineering skills that waste more time than most of us have to spare.

Made me want to go get a gallon of paint and paint my truck with a 1" brush. If I was associated with that company, I would cringe after watching that video. Bad idea !!!!!

Because he can and wanted to scratch an "I wanted to know" itch?

I missed it, the vid has been removed.
