    I'm mostly a Walnut Hill enthusiast with a bunch of RCE swage sets but over the years I've picked up a few CH4D sets as well. Here I have some 312's in various weights (80,85,88) using RCE 0.47" jackets. I have used my RCE 312 core seat die then move to the Lee classic cast to point form them in the CH4D 312 point form. These will be adequate for shooting in a CZ52

    I still can't believe that no one makes a commercial .312 100 grain or bigger jacketed soft point bullet for reloading the 327 fed mag.
    My hat is off to those of you that can afford the tooling to make bullets.

    A home made die that uses a commonly available .308 bullet to start with might be the answer to your need.

    The die should have a round hole through it .312dia. It should be cylindrical, so the out side can be threaded, a pair of nuts can be used for depth adjustment.
    A punch could be made from a bolt turned down to .312, the end of your punch will form your point.

    Lube a bullet, set it on a hard, flat surface. Place the die over the bullet, put the punch in the die, smack it with a hammer, adjust the nuts for depth until the bullet swells out to .312

    That's a really neat idea. I'm wondering though, would it affect the internal structure if tbe bullet?
