Bullet Swaging a whole new method

Post by algunjunkie on Fri Oct 14, 2011 5:13 am

Ladies and gentlemen (term used loosely). Just about everyone here knows that I am a swage fan, I love to form my own. Imagine my suprise when I found a new bullet swaging video on youtube in French. Just for giggles, I watched anyway. I am very glad that I did, OMG. He has a setup like no other, made the equipment himself. (I know cause I have been in contact with account holder asking thousands of questions via email)



Well he told me that he was going to make a second video on the subject and did he ever. It to is in French but the words are in English per my request, I think cause that is what I asked him to and it is there.



So after asking even more questions (by now I feel like I am in school, cause I am definately paying attention) and receiving even more answers. I now must look at swaging from a different point of view. Since in the second video he is using rimfire as jackets my next question was what type of groups were they getting using this method. 1/2 minute with open sites at 100 yards!

video link, look at 39sec



I am trying to extract as much information as I can. This man is doing things I have never seen before.

More to come.

That is neat the way he is doing it. I would love to see some close ups of the equipment. Wonder if that is a Rock Chucker he modified and is using upside down ??

That is slick - I don't guess I would have thought to turn it upside down and use it that way but looks like it us just as effective in the inverted position Smile
