    I got all mine from the S&S section here. If you don't see it for sale, put a WTB ad up and somebody has one. And almost always quite cheaper than new.

    Just in case, I'd use one of em, or part of it, to make up a pot of alloy and test 'er out before investing too much. I'm always skeptical of that auction site.

    Okay, I put my money where my mouth was and gave em a tumble in my little 3# Lortone tumbler for an hour. And I stand corrected.... these little balls do NOT smash themselves flat like the bigger .540 balls that I'm used to. They do smooth out a...

    Most just load it sprue facing up. There are some who will put them in their tumbler to smooth them out, but I think nearly all just shoot it sprue first. I haven't read any test that showed that it affected the ball's flight at all.
