Someone on anther board was asking about swaging wheelweight lead, and since I had some cast SWC in wheelweights +5% tin (Lyman alloy #2) I dropped a few into my Swagomatic to see what would happen.
The bullet set on the left is a Lyman 358477 SWC. The right set is Lyman's 358395 WC. I passed both through my .357" Swagomatic with the hollowpoint punch.

This looks like an easy way to make lead hollowpoints without pulling casting pins. I'd like to try the 140 grain hollowpoint first in my 9mm. Looks like it would feed nicely.
