PR and BPI have the roll-crimpers, and the swager is pretty simple, if a little kluge-y.

I had a local machine shop turn one out of a piece of sch80. It was two-ended. I clamped it in a vice and swaged with a rubber hammer.

- 'A' took the shelf down from .95± to .935-ish

- 'B' was the more critical operation, as it shaped the radius at the rim, and pulled the last .008? out.

Those measurement are from memory, but the shop built it from a print I found on the 'net.

8ga heads are all brass, and they are not that hard to shape.

If you call Tom Armbrust, he might have a swaging rig you could borrow & copy. My die is ... 'elsewhere' (apparently permanently), or you could have it.

Jeeze Bill, as if the 10ga wasn't a big enough advantage for you. I'll say it again and for the last time: You CAN NOT use anything bigger than a 12ga (and NO, 3" and 3 1/2" shells are also frowned upon) in ANY type of registered shooting.

Now, try and get that straight Bill and pass that along to your boy as well.

Actually I talked with Tom Armbrust on the phone yesterday and bought his book.
He offered to resive my hulls but I thought if I could get one built I would do that. I do not have a loader. From what I understand you load them by hand and roll crimp on drill press?

Tron, Need every advantage I can get!
