So your contention is that the tool is suspect?
It is an accurizer with a rebate for the rim, and was not made by me, but by D Rock at Rimfire Central.
A similar tool is made by Paco Kelley at leverguns.com .
use a press so as not to shock the cartridge, but after having reshaped a number of bullets in live rounds, I decided to try tapping on it with a hammer, as is advertised
. Nothing to the contrary happened, and I therefore began using a light hammer about as much as the press.
I guess if that's your main concern, I can see where it comes from, and I had the same concern at first.
It just doesn't seem to bear out as a problem as that rebate is there to keep the pressure off the rim.
Now, if the other side were used - the side without the rebate, yes, it most certainly would go off.
