be careful with your dies and try it dont use too much pressure. worse thing happens is you have to melt it down and start over. he who never tries never succeeds

Like Reload stated, you never learn unless you try... I would like to state this..... use pure lead and I would try to stay away from using anything steel. Swage dies will split and the last thing you want to do is try and replace a die that is almost a year behind in production right now.....

Keep thinking dart...any idea is better than staring at a blank canvas without a clue of what to do.

I've been saving various sized ball bearings for the possible use as in bullets....Now I'll let you be the guinea pig first Smile

Just don't try using them in conjunction with the hollow point punch. If you find a good way to seat the bearing after the hp cavity is formed...that should work.

That's what I got hawcer ball bearings after the ogive has started forming I'm gonna pull out the nose HP punch and drop a bb down in the HP then finish the nose forming it will be cool the bb should not touch any part of the die so it shouldn't hurt anything I also want to do the same with a plastic bb I also what to get a 40 cal stage punch to use for the core seater instead of the squirt punch so I can make flat cores to make HP like the varment grenades iv got some cool ideas I just gotta get a press and dies LOL

That's what it is all about Dart - thinking outside of the box. As long as you're dreaming you've got something to work towards. I'm anxious to see how these turn out for you.
