    Core seating for me is a bit of a combo of feel and measurements. Science with experience? I like a little "drag" as it comes out of the die with a known a out of lube on the jacket before it goes into the die. Ref the notes, I also keep note of...

    I like the idea....but my little jackets are only .460" long. They would get lost in that beastie! Do they work with straight wall cases? Bill

    Thanks for all the input. It sounds like I am not the one who prefers a better cut jacket than a pinch trimmer produces. The machined jackets are square and perfect length. Once point formed the length variation is minimal and no uneven meplat. I...

    Hi Alex4x4, Nice tooling for those that want it but I have no issues with tip forming if the jacket has a machined mouth. I am finding I get many folded tip if I have used the Pinch trim style. Do you get some folded tip after you have trimmed the...

    I have tried annealing the case prior to trimming and the case just crumpled. As I have a temp controlled kiln I tried less heat for less time to make them harder all the way through dead soft. All crumpled. On his site for the ET-2 Dave Corbin...

    This is not meant to be another how do you trim your jacket thread but rather your observations on the effect of trimming has on a jacket when point forming. I build my jackets out of 22lr jackets as do many here on the forum. Although I have...

    Bills Shed replied to a thread 20 cal from 22lr brass in Swaging
    I have not made any 14'cal but have shot thousands of my 17 cal projectiles and I can only go by what I see and I am pretty convinced that RPM is only one factor in projectiles coming apart. I believe barrel condition ( roughness) and surface...
