Like a lot of good ideas, the originator can't think of everything. You don't need no steenking LR brass, take the 17 HMR brass and neck up!! You can do the 20 velly, velly easy with one of those and nooooo stretch marks.
Now, your oxidizer. Bad ju ju. Need all sorts of permits, unstable etc etc. Go straight to ethanol (our country's ace in the hole)and mix just a wee bit of avgas, say 10% and you'll be good to go.
Reamers? Y'all be missing the boat on this and wasting good time and better $$. Just get a set of # drills and go to mortifying them to your heart's desire. It will take a couple to get it just right but with the sizes being so close, well, you have plenty of stock to work with.
As I stated, not being critical, just fine tuning a wunnerful idea............don't no Y I didn't thunk of it.

One thing your guys forgot to calculate if you did go to a longer case is the optics. If I do the math correctly, this longer case should be some where in the neighborhood of a 6000 yard gun (taking the 22 short cases, and stacking them on top of each other to reach the size of the 30-06 case.... I also had to run to Wal-Mart to get more tape to hold them together to get 100% accurate measurements on my bob the builder measure-o-graph).
Not sure what you had in mind, but I bet you will need something a bit more predictable. Only thing I know of that has that kind of reliability, is my wife glasses. No matter what I do, say, or where I go, she knows about it. Get those lenses from her, and you'll never miss (or be wrong).

A three stage round; you may be onto something there. If we cut the necks off .17 RFs, load them with liquefied potassium nitrate and sugar, then stack them in a 22 mag shell on top of the C4 charge, after they solidify of course, we might be able to reach escape velocity. Besides, Comcast is down so often it would be weeks before they noticed one of their birds went missing.
