Hey someone else with grey hair!!(or lack of hair)!! I used a punch that I shaped to a very rounded point and it worked ok. But also by accident I found that a "hand swage could be adjusted by raiseing the anvil and could get it to swage the gullet bottom in a fashion but it also spread the throat a bit which did not hurt anything!! If you have an Armstrong swage this is easy to do as you can manipulate the die very easily. "RODD"
