Anybody out there have the ability to build a 8 ga resizer? Also looking for a roll crimper for 8 ga. Bill

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!

You can shoot an 8 ga all you want but you are not permitted to hunt with it. Its as far as I know illegal to do so. You had better check your game laws for the state you hunt.

You need to contact John Millar in Grand Forks B.C Canada he makes loading tools for the big stuff 4's and 8's. He does very good work and has lots of experience.
Good Luck

Auctioneer, It is illegal to hunt migratory waterfowl with it, you can hunt anything else with it in Michigan.
