    BT Sniper replied to a thread 22 cal partition in Swaging
    yep.... heavier bullet could be accomplished with 22 mag or 17 HMR brass as well and that brass is thicker and therefor stronger then the 22lr jackets. For those of you thinking about it I do NOT recommend attempting to derim 22mag or 17 HMR...

    I bet if you added a canalure groove it may help a bit too in the performance of such a bullet. BT

    BT Sniper started a thread 22 cal partition in Swaging
    Customer and I got to discussing wether a 22 cal partition bullet would be possible using two 22lr jackets, so I gave it a try. Used a standard 22lr jacket for the back half with about 30 grains of lead in the base then core seated a 20 cal...

    Here is a die I came up with for making SWC 45 cal with base guards. Swaged 45 cal bullet on left, cast 44 grain boolit that it started out as on right. BT

    BT Sniper replied to a thread cheap dies in Swaging
    I had excellent luck using a 44 cal SWC cast boolit then swaging it in the 45 cal SWC swage die with a copper base guard. A bleed hole is possible, adds a little labor cost. You could swage a bullet that has already been lubed. BT

    BT Sniper replied to a thread cheap dies in Swaging
    This is an area of swage dies I am considering offering dies for. Take simple cast boolits and swage them for best possible accuracy. Could be an easy die like my BTSimple. My target cost would be in the $200- $250 range for the one die and base...

    If you reload 50 BMG this is the die you need to deprime your brass without resizing it or having to clean it first. This die works like any other universal decaping die simply scaled up for the 50 BMG or 416 barret case. Use this die to deprime all...

    Speed limits is a deep subject, and possibly part myth when it comes to bullets made form 22lr brass. There are a lot of variables. I have successfully shot 22 cal bullets made from 22lr brass less then 1/2MOA at 3500 FPS from a 223rem but for all...

    Good deal, I think most would rate it as a slower unique.. I do believe this will work fine in 16 and 28 gauge as well. I like it for heavy bullet 9mm ammo for my 929.. 147 RN epoxy coated bullet over 3.8 gr of Herco gets me a nice light 132 Power...

    I've been trying out their "Tac Rifle" powder in my AR.. I like it and it's relatively inexpensive compared with some others like H335, Accurate 2015 and Win 748. Though Powder Valley has been offering this line since the shortage. I've had a few...

    I'm sure it is possible to get good accuracy, and the 9mm 30 cal jacket certainly has some great advantages to it as far as controlled expansion and probably deep penetration, I have a post here somewhere that shows the bullet cross sectioned next...

    I did, but it is a lot easier to use 7.5x55 brass that is already .500 at the base. 308win, necked up and the final 820 grain bullet! BT

    You can make as heavy as 400+ grain .458 bullet from scrap 45ACP brass. Much easier to work with then shearing the rim off the 44mag. BT
