I am curious what kind of tools would be required to perform this operation. Anyone here ever cut rifle brass to make pistol brass?

I have used rifle brass (.348 Winchester?) to make .445 Supermag. I won't do that again.

Cutting is easy, except that the length changes when you resize. Inside reaming is a pain, and not possible to get concentric.

You need a lathe-type reaming tool and some way to cut the brass to length, plus the sizing die(s).

Are you saying that Super brass is no stronger than standard ACP brass? If so then that contradicts what other sources (such as Triton and Texas Ammunition) say about it.

Personally I'll stick to recommended load levels, thank you very much. There's just a little too much unsupported case there to be adventurous.

Well it took me awhile to get around to doing this, but I sawed a Rowland case and a standard 45 case in half. The Rowland is definately thicker.
