Diameter of case at base is too large.

It would be possible with a strong press and a very good lube, but would the internal capacity be comparable? I suppose that if you cannot find .225 cases it would be a potential substitute, but I have no experience with forming cases that much smaller than the desired parent case.

The base could be turned. I had some 17ccm brass made from 22 hornets where the bottom 3rd was turned.
