458 caliber swage dies

Post by mrmat4570 on Wed Feb 02, 2011 6:56 am

Just thought I would post some pics of my new Swage Dies that I made for forming HP 458 cal bullets............

This is the complete die setup


Die pulled apart so you can see the punch and bolt that has been center drilled........



Even though these were only cast wheel weights they still turned out well reforming the nose and putting a HP tip on the bullet, I hope soon i will have enough cases together to make some jackets.
