    Rest of my pics would take a while to get but again we have been shooting both the 40 from 9mm and 44 from 40 S&W with excellent results. Try it, or don't..... but many of us shoot these bullets with results that we are quite happy with. ...

    Probably most mould manufacturers use a ductile iron, of one grade or another, for their iron mould blocks. Easily machined, holds detail very well, and less resistant to warpage from the heating and cooling cycle. I use Dura-Bar 65-45-12 for...

    The way I have machined and designed these dies is for the boat tail to be formed in the core seat die. The boat tail shape is machined into the body of the die, this makes a better set up then attempting to machine internal removable parts, I've...

    Sierra 6mm .810" jacket drawn down to 22 cal 80 and 90 grain 22 cal RBT bullet made from this jacket. The 90 grain was a bit too much lead core for this jacket so it didn't quite point up all the way. Still pretty good looking bullets. BT

    That was a Hines tactical 6mm jacket drawn down. I just tried a few of the Sierra 6mm jackets that start at .810" and end up at 1.120" after draw to 22 cal, they worked perfect for 80-95 grain bullets. The 22 mag is long at 1.250" in length after...

    BT Sniper replied to a thread 22 cal VLD heavies! in Swaging
    Ideally I think the 22 mag jacket length needs to be trimmed a little shorter to allow the customer here to make his 85-95 grain bullets he desires but it is certainly impressive to see what can be done with a long jacket and a set of swage dies :)

    Since it started life as a 32-40 and was rebored I am assuming is an original?? If so dates of manufacture become somewhat important. Winchester started using stronger steels in the barrels around 1894 for the 94's and the 95's. Not sure when...
