    Looking for bullet swaging equipment. Have lots to trade. Rem. 700 270, PacNor 6mm barrel, 6-06 reamer. Lots of reloading, and casting equipment. Let me hear what you have, and see if you want any of my stuff. Thanks.

    You may have to up the ante a bit.

    My research says that, starting from zero, it takes just over $2K to get enough equipment and supplies for 1K bullets of one design.

    The way things are going I may have to bite the bullet. pun intended.

    ya sure do, but I'm always starting in the hole.:D

    There is stuff out there floating around but most bullet makers of "our" type don't do much on the net.

    I'd recommend going to Corbin's page and start calling bullet makers in his list. Its a real eye opener. I talked with one fella that makes "just about but not quite exactly" what I want. Some samples are on the way. We'll see.

    Your investment really depends on what type of bullets you want to swage.

    I have a CH 'Super C' press and dies setup for .357 half jackets with a small quantity of jackets and lead. It's all in really good shape but I stuck with casting.

    Let me know if you're interested, it's a good place to start.

    HarryCallahan,
    If HighWall is not interested, I might be.
    What all do you have? What type of dies? What bullet weight can be made?
    Thanks
