    I didn't really modify one. Mine is a old used Dake (made in USA) that I got at a scrap iron yard, I cleaned it up and since it came without a Anvil plate, I made a custom Anvil from two 3/8 steel plates, to hold a FCIII gas check die.

    It happened to me back in 1961 on a Mercury Monterray car while I was driving a (at the time) gal friend home. I pulled over and popped the hood to pull the horn wire. Wonder why she never went out with me again?Robert

    I totally agree. and I'll add, a deformed boolit will still be accurate enough at short range. But once you start shooting past 25 yards the poor accuracy will be obvious.
