Default Think we need a 'making stuff' thread...

Latest project, a Swaging die set to make my own .224 bullets from either 22lr used brass or bought jackets.

Left to right;

De-rim die and punch. (The 'form' is removable as I only wanted to harden that
rather than the whole die body)

Floating top punch holder.

Core swage (squirt) die. (Bottom punch is in the press - not shown, too lazy to go get it...)

Core seat die.
Core seat hollow point punch.

Point form die.

Reality is cannot afford Corbin's current offerings and do not have a lifetime to wait for delivery!

Hey ho, make your own!
