380 Brass Homemade

In a time of national stress it may be necessary to make what we can not get. A very available shell casing for a very popular gun would be to cut down 222 or 223 or perhaps 5.56(which looks like a 223)  into 380 shell casings. The external case size is the same and all that would be needed would to ream the inside of the case to accept a .355 bullet. However in an emergency with no ammo available the shell casing could be used with an undersized bullet if reaming was not possible or feasible. This would make a most effective close range weapon. If using a unused shell you would already have a good primer. If the shell was used you would need to load the bullet with a small  rifle primer or rebuild the primer. Do not use a small pistol primer unless you have no choice.The shell would also need to be loaded with a small amount faster burning pistol powder not the slow burning rifle powder that was in the 223 shell. The replacement powder could be salvaged from a shot gun shell  or another available pistol bullet that will not fit in your gun.Work up the powder charge in tell the gun functions normally.

They knew the public could not get a meter in an emergence so this was designed so anyone could build one with stuff you had around the house.3) US Ammunition Price list from 1912.
