Rimfire Jacket 224 Bullet-Making Kits
Corbin offers two types of kits for making free .224 bullets from fired .22 LR cases and recovered or scrap soft lead. One is
for use in your standard 7/8-14 threaded single station reloading press (type -R). The other includes type -S dies and the
Corbin S-press (CSP-1). The -S type system, with the Corbin S-press, can be expanded with other die sets to make any caliber
from .102 to .458 diameter.
Either kit can turn a fired .22 LR case into a 50-60 grain spitzer open tip bullet, and can also make other weights of flat
based bullets with open tips using commercial bullet jackets. Both kits include the CM-4a core mold, a jacket maker, swage lube,
information CD rom and DVD video, and swage dies. The -R system has the BSD-224R 2-die set, and the -S system has the FJFB-3-S 3-die set including the core swage, core seater and point former.
Both kits are equally able to be assembled by YOU, simply by selecting the appropriate and desired tools individually. You
can do this for any caliber, although some may need commercial jackets or other means of providing jackets instead of the
RFJM-22 jacket maker kit. The two kits offered are easy examples of complete packages, to help you in making your own kit for
other calibers. You can also add optional rebated boattail and lead tip forming dies to these kits at any point.
Included is the KIT-6MR kit, which makes 6mm or .243 bullets, because it is almost the same package with slightly different
dies. Most other calibers are not appropriate size for using fired .22 LR cases although you can make 5mm or .204 caliber,
.172 caliber, and .142 (.14) caliber by redrawing and trimming either commercial .22 or rimfire .22 jackets.
