Our .22 caliber aluminum gas checks are made about .006 taller than the Gator .22 gas checks, so they will fit a little tighter on a tapered shank. Tested to work on the Lee Bator .22 bullets. Aluminum gas checks are good for reduced barrel fouling and the lower cost. These are made on the same tooling as our copper gas checks.
The checks are sold in resealable clear plastic bags. USPS flat rate boxes and First Class mail are used to reduce shipping cost. Most orders ship in one business day Monday through Friday.
Sold in 4 quantities: 100 for $3.95, 250 for $4.75, $8.50 for 500 and 1000 for only $15.00.

Excellent checks, fit well, crimp well, shoot well, what more do you need. I load my rounds light for the children to shoot. Easily zeroed at 50/100 yds for longer ranges. I zero my scope to 150 using 50yd target, easy to keep LT 2" groups with kids shooting.

I cast and shoot .223 and I like running a GC on most, the AL .22 GC from Sage are awesome in function and cost! Pushing little .223 pill out of my pistol sometimes requires a GC due to the powder or speed I'm loading for and it is nice to have choices ( copper or AL).

I'm crimping these on a 51 grain spire point from a NOE mold with a base that measures .209 and they hold on pretty good.They work great and are cheap compared to the copper,but by using them I can push the velocity up to 2800 FPS.As always a great product with a great price what's not to like.I have bought several different calibers of GCs from Sages over the years and have had nothing but excellent results.I would highly recommend them to anyone reloading.

There are no complaints. These 22 caliber gas checks did crimp on...after several attempts.
What I had problems with was the cast 22 bullet which is of course...small, and the gas checks were grabbing as pushing bullet through the Lee bullet sizer causing a protruding ridge off the metal of the bottom of the gas check. Un-usable.
Reminder..gas checks are small and cumbersome due to bullet being so small. And I used the Kee 224 and 225 bullet sizer. Both sizer diameter caused the metal pulling ridge off the gas check bottom.
I finally found that I had to place gas check on base of bullet and push it on then sit the bullet on it’s base then use a small plastic head hammer to lightly tap the head of the Lee cast bullet once then run the bullet through the Lee bullet sizer “Base” first and presto!! The Sage GC’s crimped on nicely.
I also will suggest using light pressure running the cast 22 bullet through the Lee sizer...using increasing pressure til the bullet gas check crimps on then bullet slides through.
Yes...this process takes a little more time compared to normal sizing/gas checking..but just remember....the 22 cast bullets are small...really small! But the overall cost per 1,000 22 bullets is small as well. Average cost per bullet with GC for me is 4 cents per bullet. And it is a hobby of course.
The gas checks are not the issue as I use Sage gas checks for my 30 cal cast bullets with excellent results.

I purchased the Sage aluminum checks in .223 for use in my AR-15 using the Lee 55 gr bullets. It shot very well with much tighter groups over none gas checked bullets. I will buy again.

Base too small to fit reliably on LEE .224 cast bullet base with one light coat Hi-Tek bullet coating. Will try with uncoated bullets and use lube in groves.
Shamus Sage: Sorry they didn't work for you. Your copper .22's are on the way.
