Hi all,

I have been wondering what other "conversion kit" calibers there are out there besides .22LR. Specifically, I'd like to shoot 22 WMR (a.k.a. 22 Magnum). 22 Hornet or 218 Bee would be kinda neat too. Is anyone manufacturing anything like this?

The second part of my question relates to other larger chamberings. Specifically, I would like to see about getting my Colt HBAR switched over to .223 WSSM, which I imagine means a new barrel chambered for this cartridge and a new bolt. Does anyone know if any smiths are doing this?

Thanks!

22 Hornet or 218 Bee may be tough to get to feed out of the magazine. I have done 17 Mach IV, which is a 221 fireball case necked to 17 caliber. Tony Rumore Tromix Corp
