bullet swaging

i intend to make for my own use a hydraulically driven rotary press that will automatically swage the jacket, load the lead slug, expand the lead slug, form the point,. in essence the equivalent of a rotary reloading press.
i have designed and actually built many hydraulic machines in my job since 1978.

i have read bunch of stuff available on line and in print.
my question does anyone swage full metal jackets? no open point i mean.

I did before I sold off my Corbin CSP 2 press. Just put the slug in the point form die base first. No problem.
