No it is not, because it is a rim fire, and wouldn't be practical any way. Zeak

As Zeak said, it is a rimfire. Priming a rimfire requires the use of a liquid priming compound, which is spun into the rim cavity inside the case. This compound is not safe to handle in your reloading room!!

Keep yore powder dry!!

Thanks, question came up at coffee so I said I would find out.
I gather that you can't buy the primed cases and add the powder and bullet of your choice?

jmcd,
During WWII my grandfather used to reload rimfire cases - I have seen the setup and talked with him at length about it before he died. I don't know if you can still get the primer mixture but it used to be available in 1/2 oz bottles (in liquid form). The tooling allowed you to straighten the rim, re-prime, charge the case, seat the bullet and finally crimp it in place. He had a mould for his bullets and cast them from discarded split-shot sinkers. He used black powder (fffG I believe) and had a lot of fun shooting them. If you could find a source for the primed cases you could easily load RF magnums with plated or even jacketed bullets.

Paul, that's might interesting!! In 49 years of reloading, I've never seen the primer stuff for sale anywhere, though!

Keep yore powder dry!!
