    Mustang, I think that machinery is a pump. They pump the aged sludge/slurry, it has some water content to make it pump-able for up to a couple miles through a flexible hose that may be about 10" dia? The hose get connected to a tractor and plow,...

    I wonder how much spring-back there is with those FMJ? You might want a undersized 30 cal sizer die...maybe .307? I'd use a swaging lube, like Lanolin thinned with s bit of neatsfoot oil.
