Can You Reload .22 Rimfire Cartridges? This Guy Did

Is it even possible to reload a rimfire cartridge?

Well this shooter found a way in case times get really tough.

See how this shooter reloaded his own .22 long rifle rimfire ammunition.

Can you actually reload .22 rimfire cartridges? It is indeed possible as Youtuber JrMcLaws shows us.

Strike anywhere matches become the priming component and the actual powder charge is a bit of Pyrodex powder. Following the tips on this video he loads up two cartridges and caps off the tops with wax. Figure these are blank cartridges. One cartridge fires, one fails to do so during testing.

While reloading rimfire cartridges are a major amount of work and a waste of strike anywhere matches, this proves it can be done in an emergency situation.
