Some years ago, folks in Siberia wanting cheap ammo for taking small game would mix cut off match tips, grind them up in a paste with water then pusn that paste into the rim of fired .22 rimfire cases. After it dried, a dose of black powder and a round ball pushed in took meat for the families to eat. They would get 3 or 4 more firings from a single case befofe it became too difficult to index easily at the firing pin's location.
