Default curious?

My dad picked up some dies at a gun show in Louisianna years ago. They were made by a dentist there, probably a copy of Corbins dies. I made a simple core cutter as the casting of cores was too tedious and not very accurate. I was hoping to make 224 bullets of 52 grains for prairie dog elimination. My experience was not very good. My standard load of 25.5 grains of h335 produced puffs of smoke and no visable impact on paper at 50 yards. Some rounds were tumbling and others were dead on, perfect. I abandoned the project even tho I purchased a few thousand j4 jackets. I think that is the way to go. The 22 jackets are really interesting after derimming tho. Good luck! Curious to see how it works for you. Thought they might work well in the Hornet, a little less velocity.

Those would be Blackmon's dies. Good dies and a fair price.
