243 to 224 Jacket

Price: $105.00

Redraws a 243 (6 mm) bullet jacket to 224 caliber.  Most commercial jackets like those made by J4/Berger Bullets, Sierra, or Hines can be used.  243 jackets have a bit thicker walls than do 224 jackets which means the 224 jacket will also have a thicker wall than commercially made 224 jackets.  This can be an advantage when making hunting bullets or for use with very high velocity cartridges.  A smaller core swage, smaller core seat, and smaller lead wire will be needed.  A core seating punch is included with the set.
