Swaged bullets are made by a tiny minority of us gun cranks. The subject of copper tube bullets was raised under a press thread, so here is a new one so we can stay reasonably on topic to make recovery of information with the search engine a little easier.
Donna, over on another forum, has listed a set of Corbin dies for making copper tube jackets.
I do not wish to violate THR protocol, if the mention of other fora is taboo.
Regards from Darkest California,
Thank you John Paul. The forum is on Graybeard's: Swaging topic, moderated by Donna.

I have sold over a hundred sets of C-H pistol caliber swaging dies and sold the last of them on E-Bay last year. It is another way to make bullets and I don't mind any questions about them but I will defer to my Senior moderator Johnny.
I have several accessory tools left, a Corbin catalog from the 70s and about 24,000 new jackets in boxes of a thousand left from selling on ebay and some rolls of lead wire left at my family ranch. I hope to get my new scanner set up and can send swage die instructions to anyone interested and will post all my bulletcasting and swaging information at my site. Years ago I did have made molds to cast soft lead slugs for swaging and provided lead hardness testers and a write up on identifying the different hardnesses of lead by a drop and appearance test. The slug molds are gone and I have some lead pots and 50 pound smelters left.
Since swaging is so specialized it might be better there and I have a file of the mens names and addresses I found interested in the hobby if you would llike their assistance as they might have a site also.
