    Gas checks are small copper cups designed to adhere to the bottom of a lead bullet.
    They're fitted by means of a press & die.

    1. Use google or another search engine to read up on gas checks.

    2. The boollit must be of a design made for gas checks.

    Good luck in finding what you need.

    Well- I have plenty of gas checks that are made of aluminum- and they work great.

    Putting GC's on bullets not made for them is a whole 'nother ballgame, but is a specific field of study in cast bullets. It is often done. Google can guide you to many of these studies, unfortunately we don't have a great casting library to draw from here.
