Do you mean he made brass bullets? And are you talking for 22-250, .222, .223. Stuff like that? If so, how did he do it?

for many many years they(reloaders) have been using spent 22 cases for jackets on 22 bullets. It is nothing new. Started over 50 years ago.

rick1976: He used the cases for jackets into which he swaged lead wire. From what I know he shot a .22 bee, .222, 220 swift. Might be others.

You can get the corbin dies to make 22 cal bullets. Don't expect Berger or SMK level of accuracy from them though. If you wanted to make a bunch of range fodder bullets to let the kids burn through an AR then it might be worth while.

I bet all those empties could be easily pounded into some nice shiny armor for my cat.

Seeing an armored cat in my neighborhood would be just to much of a challenge to pass up. Now to find those CCI armor piercing rounds I had

If they are Brass casings sell them to a scrap company. Brass is worth $$$$$.
They would do the manufacturer no good.

Trying to picture a big fat orange cat covered in brass. Had to LOL at that one. Keep seeing The Golden Compass with Garfield instead of a polar bear.
