Default Who knows how to wildcat?? 5.56x18 is my goal...

Hey guys...

How many of you do the wildcat reloading thing???

I really want to develop a .223x18 load for the MAKAROV and PA63 (and P64 for the free Amerikkkans)

I want to see someone work with me to neck down 9x19 brass to 5.56x18 (or 556x17 maybe) for use in the Makarov... sort of a poor-mans PSM round.

The PSM is actually a 5.45x18 derived from the .32ACP cartridge, nearest I can tell. I'd love to use some V-max 40gr ballistic tip projectiles in a nice little necked down cartridge...

Heck if you used .32ACP as a base cartridge you might even be able to get a very mild semi-stagger configuration allowing for a solid 10rds in the magazine (maybe not)

Imagine a 33gr .224 projos at 2000-2100FPS from a small little pocket pistol... Even a regular 9x19 necked down to .223 running in the Mak would be cool.

Yes Ive seen the .22 Reeds Express *above* for the CZ52 (which gave me the idea, along with the PSM of course)

Here's some 545x18 ammo and the obiquitous PSM:

545x18 is far left, then .32ACP, then 9x18 Makarov....

Would be a very cool little project. Since the MAK isn't blow-back it seems to me like it would be VERY easy to make a barrel out of a 1:12 twist .223 barrel blank that was milled on the end to fit the MAK frame...

Someone slap me.

I can't find any, but maybe a sabot for 9mm/.38 barrels? Kind of like .223 Timbs for the CZ52.
