.224 bullets in 22 savage HP?

Hello folks
First post from a fellow hunter from Norway here.

I have a Valmet 212 double barreled shotgun that i got from my father. It has quite a bit of sentimental value for me. I recently found a combination barrel for sale, pretty cheap. The only problem is that it is chambered in a 12ga/5,6x52R (22 Savage HP) combo. I believe you americans moved on from this caliber, but it is still not uncommon in europe, since it's a low pressure, rimmed cartridge. This suits the breach-break combination guns very well.

I can get factory loaded ammo for this, but not in a very wide assortment. Sellier & bellot and Hornady make .228 bullets for hand loading. The 12ga/5.6 combo will suit grouse hunting performance-wise, but i have reservations against getting this barrel and having a limited amount of bullet brands to play with.

Is it possible to use the .224 bullets in some way? Bullet hold would be an issue, i might work around this in reloading by using thicker brass or sanding down the mandrel. I was wondering if any of you have tried this or heard of such a venture. What would happen to the precision?

Cheers
Trond

    Yeah, I read that one before. I'm not sure if it helps me finding good reasons to buy that barrel though... haha
