This is with a Corbin knurling tool which is expensive.

You can also just add a few cannelures with this tool.

Thank you very much sir, I like the Corbin tool the most. Must put my "thinking cap" on and make something similar for my Ardesa(test self-casts)

The Corbin tool is very expensive but well made. 2 files work well but it requires some practice.

Did you see the entire price list on the roller upgrades? C&H tool are excellent too and cost much less if you just want a cannelure.

I agree. Then you can lube the bullet and avoid leading up your barrel. He will make the mold to whatever diameter you want.

i plan on tumble lubing the bullets in rooster jacket i found on TOW. Im looking at doing it the way the PR? conicals do it. I liked them but they loaded to darn hard due to the entire length being knurled.

Has anyone ever electroplated bullets before?

Thinking about eliminating grease, and that thought popped into my head.
