Newbie cast sizing question
If I wanted to use 98 grain cast Hawkesbury river button nose wad cutters in my 308 as quiet 1300 FPS plinking trsilboss loads , they are 314 diameter, and if I wanted to size them myself and I have not swaged Bullets before , would I just make up a 308 die on my lathe about 50 mm long , slightly tapered at the bueginning , and fit it in my reloading press. And just push them thru ? I guess if I make it perfectly 308 they might spring back to 309 but that would be fine If lee made a 308 swagging die for 308 and it was avail able I would just buy it and save myself the trouble.
