Bullet jackets and lead cores must be assembled to form a usable bullet.

This involves the following steps:

  • Feeding the components into a machine capable of applying pressure
  • Providing forming dies in the machine
  • Providing a way to move parts from one station to the next

The last requirement allows progressive forming of parts in increments of pressure. Stress on the bullet is reduced by spreading the work over multiple stations.
