    You shouldn't have much of an issue.. you might get a few more fps from the magnums but that 3.5 gr load is on the mild side so it should be just fine. I did a workup with 20 different primers and titegroup and found that there was a difference of...

    Yes of course the "regular" BTSniper premium core swage dies are always available and would work. I'll have pics soon of the bullet. Brian

    I'll look into what it takes for a core swage die in the BTSimple dies and keep everyone posted. I haven't attempted it yet nor do I have the plans drawn up for one on a BTSimple style die yet. It could present a number of challenges in the BTSimple...

    Yep, I too have read about measuring the jacket length after core seating and was going to mention it. Yes a lot by feel. The way I figure when starting anything like making bullets or reloading you should take notes and right down...

    Corbin's largest tips are Aluminum, at least the ones I received a couple years ago. I too am curious about Blaster's tips there. Shank diameter looks bigger, I like!

    Interesting that 572 is the old SR4756.. SR4756 was a bulky powder and 572 is a nice compact ball powder.. so grain for grain, the 572 will pack into a much smaller space than the old SR 4756. It certainly is within the same burn speed.. useful for...

    With the right tools I expect to make them work with nearly any size jacket, Once the nose of the bullet is trimmed and a hole in the lead drilled I will place the tip in side then with a simple swage die that matches the bullet profile I will swage...

    It's a good deal of work to do it right they way it is intended, we both know it. I suppose if I was making these bullets in a manual press using the unsorted brass and unswaged lead cores I would have to be carful and form all bullets almost...
