Now before you call me nuts, I want to try something and I know its going to take a little time to do this. Can anybody tell me what powder is used in the making of 22lr ammo? Is there any way I can get a hold of primed blanks that I might be able to experiment with loading my own?

I have this grand vision of fitting a 22lr with a 35 or 40 grain Hornady v-max. I have access to a couple of machine shops that may help me out developing a shell holder and a die. Just want to know if I can buy preprimed rimfire.

Thanks in advance,
What are you going to do about the larger diameter and non-rebated base of the v-maxes versus the 22LR bullet/case?
Dang, I knew I missed something. I forgot that 22's were a smaller diameter. That would explain why they don't make them. Thanks for the reminder. I suppose they would slip down the barrel, but the pressures might be a little to much.
