save your money. The first thing to consider is "how am I going to get all that lead of the barrel when I'm done shooting? " (remember, much lower velocity, non-jacketed bullets, different twist rate) Save your dough and buy a Reminton 597 or a Ruger 10-22 and shoot all you want for under $9.00 a brick.

Bill: you are correct sir. Actually, the jacketed bullet acts like a soldering iron and "tins" the lead to it. Howver since the the lands on a 223 are cut differently than on a rimfire, the "tinning" process won't get it all. And as you mentioned, short-stroking is a fairly common problem. After using a 22 conversion kit on both a mini and an H-K , I finally gave up. Instead of my normal 45 minute cleaning session, it turned into 2 hours or more to get the bore clean. ....................fighterjock:rapid:
