    That bullet profile could be duplicated with a small lathe equipped with a tool post grinder. And a cannalure tool for the muzzleloader bullets, the process would not be fast. But considering the cost of those bullets, making your own might be...

    Glad to see you here, really want to know more about your pellet swaging. I have a .25 marauder, and am making chips plus bigger pieces of scrap from 01 tool steel in attempts at a 25 caliber pellet swage die.
