RF Jacket Maker, -S, 224
RF Jacket Maker, -S, 224 Quantity in Basket: None
Catalog No.: RFJM-22S
Price: $239.00
Shipping Weight: 1.00 pounds
  Die body only, no punch (-$50)
RFJM-22S is the rimfire jacket maker die set for turning fired .22 LR (also 22 Long or Short) fired cases into FREE .224 caliber rifle jackets.

The .22 LR is ideal for a .705 long (52-60 grain spitzer) bullet jacket, after the head has been unfolded and ironed smooth by this die. The jackets are excellent shooters, with benchrest precision potential if the same lot and type is used, fired from the same gun. They are also very easy on the bore, since the .011 thick jackets engrave easily compared to thicker commercial jackets. Also the 30% zinc content gives the jacket lower barrel friction.

The only drawback is that the jackets are both thin and brittle, so they tend to explode on impact, or peel back into four pointed stars with total loss of the core. This does no harm for varmint and target shooting, but makes them unsuitable both for high velocity loads (much over 3200 fps) and for edible game hunting. As varmint bullets they are idea, since they force you to save your barrel by loading down, and perform as if they are going 4000 fps when they strike. There is seldom if ever a richochet once the bullet touches ground.
