There's a tool out there called a thermajic. I works excellent for that very purpose.I think I paid about 60 bucks for it.

I use my wife's electric curler, fits 12-ga just right. Also use metal pipe to cool down hull after curler. It also works with star crimped shells so they can be roll crimped.

Insert a tapered dowel and steam the end of the hull over a boiling kettle, i do all my 8 gauge hulls this way, Jim.
