CC, thanks for writing on this subject. Beginning to think no one was interested in quality presses or swaging bullets any more.
Your thoughts on phematic or hydrallic hoses has been something I've been turning over in my mind's thoughts.
Got to be something better than banging the hell out of the ejector knob on the core seat rod with a hammer to get the lead bullet to fall out of the swaging die.
That sounds good if your are a certified mech that has access to equipment doing all that, but it would seem cost prohibited to myself...so, will try to invent a small lever knob affair that will ram the bullet out of the swaging die much like ramming it into the die.
This would be a device that attaches to the 7/8X14 frame die hole and die would insert through it into the press frame.
The only problem with this idea is there going to be enough leverage in such a small divice like this to have enough strength to eject the swaged lead bullet. Said bullet is under a lot of pressure when rammed up into that swaging die.
Cow Caregiver please send some pictures of any devices you come up with on this little problem.
