    Short Jacket 44 cal bullets for sale?

    Hello All;
    I used to buy and use 44 short jacket swaged bullets in handgun and rifle. No one seems to make them for sale anymore. Does anyone in this Forum make and sell shot jacketed swaged bullets ?

    Most people won't sell them even if they do make them due to Federal regulations regarding sales of ammunition and components. Watch for an old set of CH or Herters 7/8x14 thread .44 bullet swaging dies that will work in your standard reloading press and make your own for personal use. Short jackets are getting a bit hard to source and expensive if you can find them, so you might consider swaging a lead bullet with a gas check base, which could be shot as is or powder coated.
    I may have passed my "Best Before" date, but I haven't reached my "Expiry" date!
