Default Re: Odd request.

I assume you mean cartridge instead of bullet. A cartridge consists of a case, bullet, primer, and powder. You are probably going to leave out the powder and alive primer.

Bullets are either swaged or cast. Swaging is usually done by commercial makers. Lead wire is put into a die and swaged to the proper configuration. Casting is done with a bullet mold and they are poured one or two at a time. You need the correct mold to cast the bullet you are looking for and shrinkage must be taken into consideration since you won't be using lead.

.303 brass cases are available and you could silver plate them. We just don't know exactly what you are trying to accomplish. Or perhaps you want to cast the whole unit at once in which case you would probably want to have them investment cast.
