    Wondering the cost and if it is slow process.  Pistol  bullets are shot in fairly large quaniies and don’t want to get in over my head. Figure I shoot 3000 or so a yr.afish4570

    I would like to do the same thing also but the dies are usally more than I care to pay. I only shoot around 2000 a year in 40 so I guess I will just keep casting for it

    I tried making a few.  Watched a few videos on it and read many pages…  To go on the cheap, point form and expand in a 220 swift die.  Then size down in a .401 Lee size die.

    I made kind of an ugly bullet, but could be a good use for an abundance of 9mm brass.

    I read that 380 cases are thinner and easier to form, and make lighter bullets.
