You can ALWAYS just eject the brass and walk away. It just depends on how much of your money you're ok with leaving on the ground as you walk away.

Back when reloadable brass was nickels and dimes, I picked them up. Now they are quarters, half-dollars, and in some calibers Dollars, or more! Still being on the stingy side of cheap, I want my money back, to the greatest extent practical.
Contradictory statements, but proving the point precisely.
As reloaders, we are all stingy. We aren't going to walk away from .22 Hornet brass.
.22 WMR, on the other hand... Very easy to leave for Mother Earth to reclaim.

Really?? how much more? Not very much I'd think. Hornet rounds aren't THAT much fatter or longer than .22WMR.
I was wondering who would be the first to object to that statement.
My estimate is about 15-20% more.
Or, looked at from another perspective: You can put just as much in your pocket, but the .22 WMR won't take up as much room or weigh as much.
Don't even try it. It's even worse than the internet would lead you to believe.
