    Looking for info on .22 CF Bottleneck 1911 Conversion

    Recently at our club's public range a shooter was firing a .22 CF bottleneck cartridge in a 1911. The size was near that of the old .218 Bee. The configuration was a rimless bottleneck with something like a 30 degree shoulder. The owner claimed 1800 fps. I was unable to learn the name but he said he purchased it in kit form from a commercial mfgr.

    Can anyone identify the round and mfg of the cnov kit and where it can be founs?

    Thanks,
    Ron

    You sure it wasn't the Rock Island TCM cartridge, as shown here: http://armscor.com/firearms/tcm-series/

    It has been ten or more years since I read about the .22 Zipperer which is a 9x23 necked down to .22.
    Maybe Wild Bill is still doing them. Wild Bill Caldwell Tactical Weaponry

    Perhaps the .224 BOZ.

    I saw this first at Lewis Machine and Tool about 15 years ago. I think it is based on the 10mm case and then necked down to .224.

    23.00mm case length, 64 degree shoulder measured from the case mouth.
    15.825 to the body/shoulder
    19.25 to the shoulder/neck
    10.77 base diameter

    QuickLoad calculates 1,836fps with 7.8gn of AA#5, 5" barrel pushing a Hornady 40gn Jet bullet #2210.

    But I've never seen it in a gun or a conversion system for it. Every now and then some old guy talks about it.
