    .22LR loose bullets

    Is there any way to re-crimp the bullet in the case?
    Tired of finding ammo where I can spin the bullet around in the case, instead of it being tight.
    I believe that is part of the problem with inconsistent BANGS.

    I'm not sure about the inconsistencies, but I do know that I first experienced the spin in Peters 22 Longs in 1955, I was 10 years old and enamored of guns, still am. I have periodically checked my 22 ammunition in any which brand since, and the "spin" is still there in every brand I have ever used, not every cartridge, but a percentage of every brand and type. Never considered it a problem.

    Never really pondered that thought much. But next time out with the .22 I'll sort some and see if there is a difference in grouping.

    If you did change the crimp, you would also change the pressure curve. Would the ammo still be safe? I wouldn't shoot it, and if I were on the line with you and you wanted to shoot it, I would ask you to step two lanes over.

    The .22 rimfire uses a heel bullet as do all rimfire cartridges. The bullets can be turned in the case and that isn't unusually. It hasn't affected accuracy in any of my guns.

    The loose ones seems to be a problem with my rifle.
    Some of the rounds the bullet can be completely turned around and around.
    Others just a little bit back and forth, some not at all.
    Shot 50 rounds of Golden Bullet today and nothing better than 2" groups.
    Well, a couple were 1.5" or less.
