    I'm starting to slowly clean up stuff that has been hanging around I've lost interest in or no longer need. I have approximately 750 380 ACP hollow point bullets I cast myself out of Lyman #2. These weigh about 91 grains, have a hollow point and I...

    But yet it's not. Just simple cast iron, very easy to machine, in fact the carbon in the cast iron acts as a lubricant as anyone who has ever drilled cast iron will tell you.

    Driving up the mountain one beautiful day a little mule deer buck came blasting of the hill above us. Right behind him was a golden eagle trying his best to break his back. The mule deer made to a patch of trees, the golden circled a few times and...

    Mustang, Very familiar with the RBT die set, I have many of them. Fun fact you might not know and Corbin isn't anxious for others to figure out. The RBT2 die is the same as an ordinary core seat die, except that it has a RBT internal punch. ...

    The correct answer is, he pulled and melted 45/70 bullets. The West was full of that ammunition and nobody wanted military surplus 45/70. You must realize those days were tough. Elmer Keith persevered through very lean times as a young man trying...

    Mustang, Why not just draw the jackets down enough so they will fit in the core seat die. Then, use a punch that gets to the base of the "jacket" and seat it so the base is flat. The jacket can't grow because it's in the die it will ultimately...

    While the 500 Auto Max is still not here, I got another set of dies to make bullets in .510 for my 50-70 Sharps. These use the same heavy walled jackets. Shown is a 550 grain bullet ready to go. It has a DEEP 1/2" hollow point that is 1/4" wide...

    Dino, Normally you would be right, but in the pictures shown, I am trimming super heavy duty jackets that are 0.065" thick. I also don't rely on the position of the ram to determine when to stop. The way Corbin advocates, and what I do is to...

    It’s important to let people know you are talking about Richard Corbin, not David. I just bought a die set from David and was astounded he made it from scratch in less than a week!

    That is a magnum pinch trim die made by Corbin using his Hydro CHP-1 press. Takes about 900 psi to trim those thick walled jackets.
