Jsr can probably chime in with the website, but when a while a go he posted a cool link with a mini pistol than fit on your keychain, it used shells like the ones you are describing and had a hand pump to reach the high pressure necessary.

You have much better chances of getting something cheap here, but as jack said do you actually have any money to spend?

Haha least you got som half decent results the thread cutting attachment looks like a great investment it's on my list right after the rotary table.

Did you get a decent quality tap and die set? Even low quality should handle brass but you never know.
