i want to swage boolits for my 45-70. i dont want to pay for an expensive setup just to smash lead to shape. i was playing with a lee reloader and i had an idea. why not make a hammer type setup and operate it with a 20 ton shop press i have
anyone see any reason this wouldnt work? the plug on the bottom is going to be threaded and it will have a hole on it for removing excess lead. im going to cast my cores then swage them.
