"What does one do when there is a nationwide shortage of reloading components, there are no .225 Winchester cases to be found, and there is no production of obsolete cases on the horizon?"
Wildcatting During a Reloading Component Shortage: Using .30-30 Cases to form 6.5 JDJ Brass
by Jay D. Hunt, III, PhD

Many years ago, LSA President Dan Zelenka introduced me to perhaps the best all-around wildcat cartridge for the Thompson/Center Contender pistol: the 6.5 JDJ. With a 120 gr. bullet, mid-sized game don’t stand a chance. Even African plains game fall to its punch. The cartridge was developed by famed gunsmith and founder of SSK Industries, J.D. Jones. The 6.5 JDJ is based on the rimmed .225 Winchester, which is necked up to 6.5 mm (.264”) and fire formed to produce the finished case that has about 7% more powder capacity than the parent .225 Winchester. This increased capacity results from the 25º shoulder, which is located 1.530” forward of the base in the .225 Winchester, being pushed forward to 1.630” in the 6.5 JDJ at an increased 40º angle.

“We’re not calling for a boycott of these companies. But we are providing this information to American gun owners so they can make informed decisions about where to spend their hard-earned money without unknowingly supporting efforts to erode an important constitutional right.”

Current List of Anti-Gun Businesses You Should Avoid Giving Your Money

Do you watch movies at AMC Theaters? Was the film produced by Bad Robot?

  • Do you eat at Chipotle, Shake Shack, Panera, Burger King, or Subway, or have a meal delivered by Door Dash?
  • Do you wear clothes from Levi Strauss, the Gap, or Gucci?
  • Do you watch CNN, MTV, NBC, HBO, MSNBC, or Showtime?
  • Do you browse Tinder, Yelp, eBay, or Pinterest on a Microsoft computer with Comcast internet?
  • Do you shop at Costco?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have financially supported companies that want to strip us of our God-given constitutional rights.
