    MUSTANG replied to a thread 22lr Pinch Trimming in Swaging
    ZBench - Who makes the pinch prime die and press in your picture? I use a pinch trim die on my 22WMR and 17HMR cases in a RCBS press, it is more of a cone than what is in your picture. Use a Corbin press for my swaging operations.

    MUSTANG replied to a thread .224 55gr FMJ-BT in Casting Equipment
    The RCBS and NOE molds require gas checks if cast and lubed. If you are going to Powder Coat; then you will have to give it a try and see. For me, I still gas check all the Cast Rifle Boolits I Powder Coat.
