    Here is a die I came up with for making SWC 45 cal with base guards. Swaged 45 cal bullet on left, cast 44 grain boolit that it started out as on right. BT

    I had excellent luck using a 44 cal SWC cast boolit then swaging it in the 45 cal SWC swage die with a copper base guard. A bleed hole is possible, adds a little labor cost. You could swage a bullet that has already been lubed. BT

    This is an area of swage dies I am considering offering dies for. Take simple cast boolits and swage them for best possible accuracy. Could be an easy die like my BTSimple. My target cost would be in the $200- $250 range for the one die and base...

    After a casting session, I let the moulds cool completely, then give them a good spray of RemOil (get it on sale at Wally World), then store them in a 20mm ammo box. Next use, good spray with brake cleaner and they are good to go.

    From my experience with making aluminum gas checks (which I have had NO problems) if the gas check is loose on the bottom of the boolit, you need to use a thicker aluminum stock for making them. I have seen a lot of discussion, not nothing on the...

    If you reload 50 BMG this is the die you need to deprime your brass without resizing it or having to clean it first. This die works like any other universal decaping die simply scaled up for the 50 BMG or 416 barret case. Use this die to deprime all...

    I drained my pot good, then removed the control rod, liberal coat of fine valve grinding compound, put control rod back and did a basic valve seating job. No drips now.
