    As someone who still uses bullet swage dies to make varied jacketed rifle and handgun bullets and having watched through the decades as this art is becoming lost with most shooters and reloaders, I was wondering if there is anyone else on the boards still performing this dying part of our hobby?

    If so, tell us about your experiences, equipment used, any interesting custom designs, etc.

    Although I personally have not, I do know someone who uses the corbin equipment to swage 22lr casings into .223 bullets.

    My cousin also uses Corbin equipment to make Beautiful boat tail .224 bullets using spent 22LR cases as jackets.
