Cold-swaging lead shot directly into slugs? I would like to build a die / press setup that would allow me to form lead slugs strait from raw lead shot, so I could go without having to melt any lead. Does anyone know if it is even possible so form several pellets into a single mass (that wouldn't just break apart upon impact), using maybe a 6-ton press and at roughly room temperature? Thanks. *edit* I accidentally put "bullets" in the title when I meant "slugs," as in for shotshells.
