    Advantages of Making Your Own .224 Caliber Bullet Jackets

    1. Ultimate Customization:
      • Tailor your bullet jackets to your exact specifications. Adjust the thickness, length, and material to optimize performance for your specific shooting needs. This level of customization ensures that every bullet is perfectly suited to your firearm and intended use.
    2. Enhanced Accuracy:
      • Achieve superior accuracy with precisely crafted jackets that provide consistent weight and balance. Custom jackets reduce variances in standard mass production processes that can affect bullet trajectory, giving you tighter groupings and greater confidence in every shot.

    4. Quality Control:
      • Take control of the entire manufacturing process. By making your own jackets, you ensure that each one meets your stringent quality standards. No more relying on mass-produced components that may not meet your exacting requirements.
    5. Versatility:
      • Experiment with different materials and jacket designs. Whether you prefer copper, brass, or other metals, the Corbin Rim Fire Jacket Maker Set gives you the freedom to explore various combinations to achieve the optimal balance of expansion, penetration, and performance.
    6. Sustainability:
      • Utilize spent .22 LR cases to create your jackets, reducing waste and promoting recycling. This environmentally friendly approach not only helps you save on materials but also contributes to sustainable shooting practices.

    Step-by-Step Guide to Making .224 Bullet Jackets with the Corbin Rim Fire Jacket Maker Set

    1. Clean the .22 LR Fired Cases:

    • Boil the Cases: Place the fired cases in a pot of boiling water with added detergent. This helps remove any dirt or residue.
    • Rinse and Shine: Rinse the cases in hot water. For tarnished cases, add an ounce of vinegar to a quart of water for a shinier finish. Adding a tablespoon of salt also enhances the cleaning process, but ensure you rinse thoroughly with clear water afterward to remove any salt residue.
    • Dry the Cases: Allow the cleaned cases to dry completely.

    2. Stress Relieve the Cases:

    • Electric Oven Method: Place the cases on a tray and run them through a self-cleaning cycle in an electric oven.
    • Propane Torch Method: Heat the cases to a faint red glow in a dark room using a propane torch. This should only take a few seconds. Avoid overheating, as too much heat can soften the shank, causing dents during bullet formation.

    3. Prepare the Press:

    • Insert the Punch: Place the punch into the press ram.
    • Adjust the Die: Screw the die a few turns into the press head, ensuring at least three full threads are engaged. Typically, the die will be set high in the press to maximize leverage for easier operation.

    4. Lubricate the Case and Punch:

    • Apply Swage Lube: Lightly lubricate the case and punch with Corbin Swage Lube. A thin film applied with your fingertips is sufficient.

    5. Form the Jackets:

    • Position the Case: Place a .22 LR case over the punch.
    • Adjust and Press: Raise the ram, adjusting the die position so the case is pushed into the die, the head is drawn out, and the jacket is stripped off the punch and remains in the die. The jacket should be free of the die constriction and loose in the guide section above the drawing area. Fine-tune the die setting for optimal force and ease.
    • Repeat the Process: Push all the .22 LR cases through the die one after another. Collect the emerging jackets from the top of the die.

    6. Utilize the Jackets:

    • Turn Jackets into Bullets: Use Corbin bullet swage die sets for .224 caliber to turn the jackets into bullets (not included). You can navigate to the Corbin Firearm die set page and select a .224 caliber die set, to complete your purchase and process your jacket to a complete bullet. The jackets can also be drawn to .204, .172, or even .142 in two or three steps with Corbin Draw Dies. 


    • RFJM-22R Die: Fits standard 7/8-14 thread head, t-slotted ram reloading presses capable of accepting standard RCBS shell holders.
    • RFJM-22S Die: Fits the Corbin S-Press (CSP-1).
    • RFJM-22H Die: Fits the Corbin Mega-Mite (CSP-2) and Corbin Hydro-Press.

    You'll need the Corbin Rim Fire Jacket Maker Set, a reloading press compatible with the die, a Corbin Mega-Mite Press, or Hydro Press, Corbin Swage Lube, and .22 LR fired cases. Optionally, you may want an electric oven or propane torch for stress relieving the cases.

    Boil the cases in water with detergent, rinse in hot water (adding vinegar and salt for tarnished cases), and allow them to dry completely. Ensure you rinse thoroughly if using salt.

    Stress relieving prevents folding of the ogive by making the cases less brittle. It can be done by running the cases through a self-cleaning cycle in an electric oven or by heating them to a faint red glow with a propane torch.

    Yes, the jackets made with this set can be drawn down to .204, .172, or even .142 caliber in two or three steps using additional Corbin draw dies.

    The time required depends on your setup, experience and quantity. Once you become familiar with the process, it becomes quicker and more efficient. You can turn out jackets in 5-10 minutes with practice.
