    I'm still curious what cartridge it is. Some close to a .45 or .50 caliber something???
    12,6mm is .496

    Hmm. Plot thickens.


    Very nice work!!!

    They look like 44 Schoefield but without scale, it is hard to tell.

    Please show how your dies are mounted on your machines.
    Is this something that could be done on a 20ton shop press?

    What type press are you using? I don't see any threads on your dies to indicate a standard type press.

    I bought the press as a discarded metal waste.

    It is an old mechanical punch press. The plate on top is the motor mount. The flywheel ran via a belt drive and had a foot or hand pedal to actuate it for the down and up cycle.

    When the dog got worn they were prone to double (or more) cycling. I presume he is using it manually for this very reason. They could cycle without warning and therefore dangerous to load and unload stock.

    Now that is neat. I thought us Swagers got overly involved but this takes to a whole new level.

    These videos never fail to aggravate the tar out of me. Standing there and giving a half sentence explanation and watching the running press explains squat about the actual process and how the dies work.

    I had to chuckle, "the worlds finest cartridge brass producer". Product propaganda, I know, and I like Starline brass, but Lapua? Norma?

    I always love to see vintage tools and equipment brought back into use. Well done!
