I just sent a S&W model 15, K22 barrel and cylinder and my Clymer reamer to Andy Horath to have him build me a .224 Kaychuck. Can't wait to hear from him been considering this build for a long while. Anyone familiar with this caliber(I first learned about it when I bought and read Al Georg's book way back when)? ?

I have heard it mentioned what is the parent cartridge? I was thinking it was based off a 243 Win but apparently I'm wrong on that.

Hornet is the parent case shortened then the shoulder blown out. I doubt a K22 cylinder is long enough to house a .243 case? Checkout Al Goerg's book Pioneering Handgun Hunting?

I just picked up a Contender barrel that is chambered in Gary Reefers 240 Banshee. It's basically a 22 K hornet necked up to .243
