    I was watching Matt’s last video where he’s in Argentina and his shooting buddy Claudio around 7:10 in video was showing a device he has for making his own pellets. I’m curios if any of you have tried something similar and where to get the hardware.

    I’m also very intrigued. Claudio has the methods down pat. Great video of the process by Matt as usual. I would like to know more info on the mold and manufacturer. Seems worthwhile.

    From one of the sponsors of one of Claudios videos the company is called H M HEN.  Lol bit like H&N.

    Can’t find anything online about them, I’d love one as well.

    Here is a link about the swag molds but it’s in Chinese I think we need to find a translator.

    What about lead wire though?    Looks like Claudio is using 5mm lead wire,  so say for .25 you use 6mm and it expands when swaged.    23 feet of the stuff is 175$ so say you use 1/2 an inch per pellet (too much) you’ll only get 500 out of that.  Even if you used 1/3 of an inch and got 800 out of it still it’s probably 190$ with shipping just in material.  Not cheap.

    in china,the mold is a secret transaction.Because it’s illegal to buy a mold.
    the peripherals of the mold can be easily purchased on the internet.
    that link is not a shopping site.
    chinese merchants will not be sold on ebay.
    i hope you, the united states, there are businesses that can design production ,this mold.
    my english is not good.i dont.know if you can understand what i mean.

    Hi marshmello,
    do you have a qq number you can send me by private message  (you can do that on this forum by clicking on my user name). I can speak with you about this and see if there is a way to help that would be *legal* for everyone (I can speak chinese but not read it). I have tried to contact other people about this before but have not had any success.

    I have a Corbin press and dies, have more dies of different designs coming in the future.  Tests show .02 of a grain in weight from highest to lowest.  Very repeatable and consistent.

    are your dies for pellets or slugs ?  .02 diff is good, if you are doing pellets can you show some picts ?

    Can we expect to see videos of your setup and process. I would also like to see some thoughts on economic viability (as if there ever could be one for this ailment ;( )

    My die that I have now, is for a pellet that has the profile of a slug.  It’s what’s called a 3/4 modified Keith nose, and is a semi wadcutter.  It is 4.53 in diameter, and all pellets weigh 8.66 and 8.68.  I’m not happy with the design, one of the reasons why I have different dies ordered.  Here’s a picture.  When I get the new dies, I will put out a video demonstrating the process.  Won’t be for a while, there’s a many month wait for the dies.

    that slug looking pellet probably isn’t the most accurate for .177 and 4.53 is too big for most of our/my guns
    do you have diagrams or prints of the dies coming ?
    are they shaped like the Chinese ?
    keep us up to date Tom

    The dies I have coming are perfect round nose, 3/4 modified Keith nose.  I can leave the pellet as a semi wadcutter, like the above picture, or along with another die, I can swage that wadcutter shoulder away.  I don’t know what size it will be, but they will be the proper size for my custom Crosman barrel on my WFTF Marauder.  Also, with all of Corbins dies, they are weight adjustable.
