Just whack 'em once each square on the top( be very careful you are square) with a claw hammer. It's gotta be a 24 oz. though, not a 16 oz.. The 16 won't get 'em to swell enough.

If your asking about the resizing 45lc or 460 brass to fit in your 45/70 it wont work. the cases do not have interchangable dimesions. You Could get hurt trying it
