Complicated yet simple.... I have some round stock laying around. I may give it a try.

Ballards may be weaker,
but they sure are neater!

Seems to me that any 4 jaw chuck on a lathe could be set to turn the shank off center. Just calculate how far off center to change the strike from dead center to the edge of the .22 rim.

I have one of those. I'd think two setups. One to turn and thread the shank, and a second to chamber. My muzzle is centered, so there must be a slight angle between the bore and the face of the breech, but it doesn't seem to matter when it comes to shooting it. I'd think indexing it correctly would matter.
