    Man thats gonna be sketchy at best..
    2 already appear to be real brittle, and have cracks.
    if ya try it, go real slow, and take your time... use something soft like a plastic spudger maybe.

    Make an outside mold by drilling a hole the same size or smaller than your finish cartridge. This will support the sides of the shell and keep the metal from stretching too far.
    After annealing the cartridge with a low flame propane torch, use a sharpened (with rounded end) hardwood dowel to reshape the cartridge. Good luck.
