Been experimenting a bit today. What I hope to perfect is a One Step Universial Notching Die. Goal is to add XTP look-a-like notches to any bullet from 50 on down to possibly as small as .223. It should defently make short work of all my custom bullets made from brass cases with rims on it, ie. 45 and 44 and 41 from the 40 S&W and the 41 and 40s from the 9mm. It should allso work well for convential jackets. This way you will be able to notch any caliber with just the one die.
Tried it out today and it worked perfectly with bullets all ready made with the one step die in 40 and 44 cal. Take an allready formed bullet, push it into the notch die then reform in same swage die with smaller HP and you have perfect notched bullet.
Here they are, the 255 grain 44 cal and 185 grain 40 cal both notched with same die.
