    Not much room for a good powder to bullet weight ratio there...

    Depends on the powder burn rate.

    Lol, I don't think so, Tim... unless you want the velocity of a .22 short (or less?).

    meh, minor details.

    Give me a 22 mag with that projectile and we'll be in business.

    Powders are so different in their burn rate which is why some are for pistol and some for rifle. Some burn hotter in the cold vs some burning cooler in the cold temps. Blue dot as an example. Shotgun or Pistol powder for magnum loads. WTF or WCF shotgun powder for centerfire pistol. Shot thousands of rounds in competitions with both powders.

    No argument there...

    But I'm guessin' none of 'em had a bullet longer than the case.

    My understanding is that they seat the same, and they’re 32gr solid copper bullets. I know nothing about reloading, but that sounds like things will be similar, no?

    Unless that one on the right is hollow (or an alloy?), it's gonna be waay heavier than a standard .22LR bullet.

    Ah, they're solid copper I see.

    FWIW, I don't reload either (I don't reckon anyone here reloads rimfire).
