perverted cases


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Was reading another thread that got me thinking back some.
There was a time when I could not afford factory loads or justify buying new brass to feed my 6mm Remington rifle. 30-06 sprg and 270 win was free as ejected brass from others littering. Was a fare amount of work to "pervert" those cases, but it works good.
Checking inventory for that rifle, I find less than two boxes with the proper headstamp. Purdy much a lifetime supply made from other cases.
Rifle is a #1 from Ruger, so minimum work is now required to make ammunition (size just enough to keep a bullet in there).
Thinking right now that if I needed to order some new brass for it, I would likely order 7mm Mauser rather than genuine 6mm Remington as a preference (I've seen it for sale).

Thinking further, if I manage to shoot the barrel to toast. Might "pervert" the rifle to 7mm Mauser?

And after that you can pervert it to 8 mm Mauser and then after that pervert it to 9 mm Mauser, that's a lot of perverting you will be able to do !

Pervert it to a .257 Roberts first, then in your second lifetime you can try to shoot out the 7x57 that comes next.

I've got a #1 6mm Rem with a heavy Walthar-Lothar SS barrel and a T-16 Weaver that's never shot a 6mm headstamped case.

Not so much a unique situation as it was a moment of reflection. Good that I am not alone.

If I was starting over with my rifle (knowing what I do now), I'd not use 6mm cases either.

****it!

Glad this was cleared up. I was imagining a #1 standing in a dark corner saying, "Pisst, hey buddy..."

Cheezywan, you could be onto something, no wait; too late. It has already been done, complete with a price list and available chambering.

Am I getting over your heads? Sorry didn't mean too. Is a technical term. Sorta means "to use for other than it's intended purpose". I'll try to not do that anymore.

Again, it has already been done and the intended purpose was to purchases a rifle, ware it out and then send it back. Anyhow, the manufacturer would bore the barrel and cut the chamber to the next appropriate size etc and if necessary set the barrel back. In the beginning they included pictures in their catalog of rifles they built.

Cheezywan, I was going to mail you some additional information through the mail system anyhow, in the old days there was an 8 page catalog that was available with all of the details.

It won't be an issue F. Guffey. I'll not shoot it out. It is a real accurate rifle that tends to need only one shot. If I miss, a second never happens anyway. Is a member of a very elite family of cartridges.

I'd guess 90+% of what I shoot doesn't have proper headstamped brass, either because of being wildcats or cases were better and/or less expensive to make from something else.

A handloader could for certain get by with less than what is available.
I won't buy brass for the rest of my days.

I don't think I've seen 6mm Remington brass for sale in the past 4-5 years, and I've looked for it. The only 6mm Remington casings I've acquired has been from factory rounds.

I was at Kittery Trading Post in Kittery, Maine, the other day. They had 6mm Remington in stock. Only reason I know was they also had a Remington 722 in 244, the early incarnation of the 6mm Remington, that I looked at

Could be called "repurposing" couldn't it?

It's not common, but it is out there.
Internet makes finding a source easier now that I don't need it anymore.

I've had about the same experience with .300BLK from .223. The brass was basically free, as was a great portion of my stock of .38spl, 9mm and .45 acp. it's a fair amount of work making 300BLK, but very satisfying. And it's good for multiple reloadings. Us reloaders were repurposing and recycling way before it was cool.

Uncle Sam will cast your sorry carcass into prison for using things for other than that item's intended purpose. I read so on some bottle of something I recently had in my grasp. I have to wonder if the beef is longer and the time is harder if someone was to remove the tag from their mattress. Uncle is really strict on that one...
