Swaging Question

Post by Daywalker on Sun Dec 02, 2012 3:41 am

I Know that I can use a .40 spent case to swage for a 44 mag and 45 acp. I now have a set of swage dies to swage .38/.357, however, I am not sure what spent case I can use for a Jacket.

Any thoughts??

Also, what is the advantage of half jackets?? I have quite a bit of half jacket cups for this caliber..... Just not sure if I am into half jackets or not.... Still thinking on it....

I believe that the 32 auto works. This is not first hand but recollection from a faulty memory. I don't think the 32's will be as economical as using the 40's for the larger cal.

I have a set of draw dies to draw down 9mm but you can use 32auto as well if you can find it.

What would it take to get you to draw down some 9s for me sending you the brass of course?

Not a clue. I have not spoken with Dave in a while. The last I heard, from what he said, they only do limited runs now. Then it is first come, first served. They do a run, put it on the site and it is there until sold out. Then later, they do another batch. I forget what the inbetween time is.

This is from their website:

"All bullet swage dies are now a semi-prodution item. This means that they will no longer me kept in stock as a standard item. We will make a run of these dies once every 12-18 months. So when they're gone, they're gone until the next run. Call for availability."
