    Mold making for the "not too fussy"

    I made this video for someone else but decided to share it. I want people to try things that they think only rocket scientists and people by the name of Corbin can do. This is what a pure caveman hack can do.
    This is a mold I made for making semi-precise cores for swaging 22lr. Two of the requirements were that it needed to drop cores between 40 gn and 42 gn and the base had to be .206" both requirements were met. My mind is somewhat scrambled and I make mistakes talking...(like refering to the mold body as the sprue and calling .206" "two point oh six inches" But at least I hope it will entertain the more serious and precise guys here. Feel free to ridicule me. https://www.dropbox.com/s/n9t365fksc...00029.MP4?dl=0
