In the seventies I remember a company had a home jacketing machine called the Corbin mighty max or mini max something like that. Anyway it allowed a home bullit caster to swage jackets onto his castings. The main reason I don't cast my own is the amount of work it takes to get lead out of a barrell especially for big magnums.
So does anyone know if the product is still out there by another name.
And on another note. Has anyone ever run across a home case forming setup.

not to send you elsewhere, but there is a lot of information on swaging at another forum on the internet. castboolits is a great resource for anything projectile related, they have a subforum specific to swaging
Lots of information there. Presently working on a set of dies to make .224 from .22lr, then I'll be on to making .40 from 9mm, and .45acp from .40S&W. Check it out. You won't find more info anywhere on swaging.

Use the correct alloy for the velocity and pressure being used. All the info is on the site. People use cast for deer hunting up past 2800 fps. The guys at the CBA will tell you how to do it!
