I just picked up one of his 22 LR jacket making die set.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/22-caliber-De-Rim-Die-Iron-spent-22-LR-Rims-Jacket-Maker-224-/350506579971?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item519bd1f803#ht_500wt_1127

So far they work pretty good. I am having three issues:

1) My stock Rock Chucker handle is too short. Since the IED destroyed my chest I have no upper body strength. I need a longer handle for better leverage.

2) I have not annealed the 22 LR hulls that I was trying to cram through the die.

3) The 17 HMR brass is also not annealed. I have not found a way to expand the itty bitty 17 cal neck without crushing the hull. I am now trying to cut off the itty bitty 17 cal neck with my Harbor Freight chop saw to see if that helps swaging these longer brass hulls.

My Swage-It dies are pretty good. I like the design of the 22 LR derimming die as I can change the interior collet to make bigger or smaller jackets.

I had ordered a 22 LR derimming die from another maker who after waiting nearly 8 months returned my money and told me that he was out for the foreseeable future.

The seller of these on Ebay, Hawk849 is quick to answer questions and had great customer service. For buying these on a whim, I have been pleased.

So far the problems I am having, I believe are newbie OE issues.

I should post some pics here or start my own thread for these jackets.
