the prosess is really super simple, but it can get more complicated depending on your desired outcome on target. any you need a jacket. and a lead core. you seat the core in the jacket and squeeze them up in diameter close to the final diameter. to do that you use a core seating die. then you use another die called a point forming die. this one puts the basic shape of the point on the nose and bumps the diameter up to the final size. there are other dies you can add such as a tip forming die. this one shapes the extra lead at the tip into the pointed shape you see on your normal hunting type bullets. [of course you need a different weight core to accomplish this versus a non exposed lead tipped bullet.] the best way to get that is to use a core swaging die which compresses the lead into a more uniform shape and size by bleeding off a small amount of excess lead from each core. this one has other benefits such as it removes any air [from a cast core] and gives you a smoother finish push against when seating it in the core. you have other dies, but they are pretty self explanatory and are probably unnecessary for 90% of what most people do. and you have other accessory's for the different swage dies. you can put different point shapes in the point forming die flat noses, rounded noses, large and small hollow points, all in the same point form die.
