    I'm hardly taking credit for "coming up with the idea". Who was the first? I don't know. I can tell you I haven't had much time to go further with it in the last couple of years as life has had me tied up. I do love to read what guys have come...

    Gauge, I think you need to rethink your approach on the slot and associated bore depth. If you were only going to make one bullet of a certain length, you could do what you indicated. However, there is considerable difference in length between...

    The slot is 4.5" long from the apex of one radius to the apex of the other. I don't think you need to get too concerned about the length of the slot, +/- .125 is probably good enough.

    From one budding machinist to another: The slot is .275" wide The slot is 4.5" long The bottom radius of the slot is 6.875" from the face of the ram The threaded portion of the ram interior is approx .925" in diameter. The minor...

    I'd say the H dies are the way to go. Dave Corbin will happily sell you dies no matter where you got your press. I can post the dimensions for the ram later today unless someone beats me to it.

    That's folklore. The real test is when it goes to trial, you get to convince the jury that your invention is the same as the one in question. The jury goes by sight and reading the letters patent. Since juries are lay people, no one wants to take...

    Maybe use a thick piece of yoga mat...that should be self healing to a certain degree as long as you don't shoot in the same place time after time...would be easy on the bullet nose too

    If you devoted the time to building a wooden box like 18" square and 3 feet long with an open top and lined it with poly, couldn't you make the end out of hdpe or some other hard plastic that is 1/8" thick? Sure you will get holes in it and the...

    JSN, I was merely trying to point out an extreme example. How could anyone measure the change in hardness of .008" of driving band lead? My thought was that if a slug of lead wasn't changing hardness after it has been forced through a very...

    Rolltide, The only thing I'll respond to is throwing away $500. I own and operate a commercial shooting range, and we rent the 50 AE and go through a lot of 50 AE ammo. Having a type 7 license, we reload quite a bit for our customers. So, not...

    So, what that means to me is that if you "heat treat" the lead, and make it artificially hard, and work it, then it devloves back to it's normal hardness, which was the baseline to start with? Do you interpret that also to mean if you just cast...

    Dino, that's something I can't wrap my mind around. I know it's real as I've seen it in the tables of Corbin's power swage book, but it still mystefies me. The press pressure is nominally 2000#, but the ram pressure is 16,500#? How can that be? ...
