    Whoa.. Don't poke yer eye out. Smallest boolit I cast is 25 acp, at just under 50 grains. .22 LR is sketchy in my book. But, good luck with it.

    You did well with the video production, keeping in mind the camera, lens, etc. So, let me understand the purpose of those bullets........... You are going to swage lead material into a bullet shape to stuff into a 22 LR case, and that...

    Yessir! I have some from the NOE 311-150 SP mold. That is MY favorite to shoot in my 300 Blackout. Have a bunch of them already cast, lubed and gas checked. I could send you a SFRB of those in exchange for a cup. I don't feel the need for stealth...

    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread cheap dies in Swaging
    The answer to your question really depends on what kind of quality level you want. If you merely want to take a chunk of lead, and smash it into a 45 caliber shape, there are tons of reloading die sets that will get you a result, as JonB points...

    Gandog, welcome to the Castboolits site. I know you from the ammo brass trader sister site. ill do my best to walk you through the process. I would first ask that you read through most of the stickies, even though they might not apply to .22...

    The Nickel on cases is electroplated onto a brass case. The nickel plated cases are especially designed for law enforcement use. The plain brass cases on a sweaty officers hip for six months would tend to oxidize, and could cause a malfunction. The...

    DukeInFlorida replied to a thread 40 S&W from 9mm in Swaging
    For my .40"s, I use a 9mm Luger case trimmed down to 380 auto length (I'd use 380's, but they are a bit harder than 9's to find). I use a RCBS Pro Trim, with the hand crank replaced with a TORX screw (and no crank). I put a TORX driver bit in my...

    Not wanting to sound like a barrel snob, my home made swaged​ 55 grain bullets shoot .5 moa out of an off the rack 1:9 barrel. I don't do anything special making them. I don't even bother matching cores to jackets for perfect weights any more....

    The better bet, in my opinion, is to use the 5.7 X 28 FN brass for making wonderful .308" HP bullets. The 150 gr bullets I make are perfect for my 300 blackout. And, I have made them as heavy as 168 grain, for use in my M1A with 308 Win ammo....

    I'm using the top end of a 223 Rem case as the donor jacket for my 125 grain 9mm bullets. Cut off the neck, and then reduce the body diameter slightly. Then, trim off the body just below the shoulder. Makes amazing XTP style FMJ 125 grain bullets. ...

    I make all my 44 mag, and 45 acp bullets from .40 S&W donor brass. The ratio works out perfectly. No trimming required.
