The case design kinda gets me thinking, and that could be a problem! I think the round necked down to .204 or 17 caliber would be a really nice short range varmit round. I have a new wildcat in mind rigt now that uses a .225 case size but is radically changed. Kinda like a 22 PPC short, but with a smaller case and necked down to .204. After looking around for the last few weeks the basic case was setting right under my nose. The 6.8 remington round as a parent case.

Good luck. It has been done, wildcating this round. The 224 works best in the PDW and pistol realm though. Rifle, you may be on to something.
