You would lose a good deal of case capacity by trying to make a centerfire equivalent to an existing rimfire case.
I did think that might be one limitation, certainly in a LR case.

I can't imagine why anyone would want to do this, when rimfire ammo is so cheap and plentiful
They used to say that about crude oil.... It might not always be, or perhap brass might start being hard to come by.
Nothing expensive about exploring the concept's potential or limitations...

There was at least one rimfire cartridge that was converted to CF.They then made rifles that you could change from RF to CFwith a little switch. Can't remember the cartrige.
Sounds cool!!
Such a cartridge would also mean that C-F pistol conversion kits to .22 could be much cheaper: barrel and mags, perhaps
When the right to effective self-defence is denied, that right to self-defence which remains is essentially symbolic.

Karma. Another word for revolver: because what goes around, comes around!
