    April-May 2016 Photo Submission Topic: Boolit Board

    April-May 2016 Photo topic: Boolit Board
    In the past, J-word manufacturers have offered Bullet Boards as kind of a advertising thing. I have seen a couple members make Boolit Boards, for all the molds they own. If you have one, or feel the need to put one together, even if it''s not complete ...Let's see 'em. Even just a simple "line-up" of your boolits, is fine.

    Bullet Board (or bullets on a board)

    Here's my version of having a bullet board. Made using old shooting trophy boards, some pieces of coat hanger wire and clear epoxy.

    Well, a long time ago, I started some cartridge displays. As I collected or obtained various cartridges I added them to the display. I need to replace the foam backing as it is now letting some of the rounds slip or move out of place. It does have some rather exotic cartridges in it too. Anyway, I have centerfire cartridge display, a rimfire cartridge display, and a shotgun shell display.

    I had hoped to whip up a boolit board, but it ain't happenin' I guess.
    I did scoop up a bucket full of used boolits and slivers while we rebuild are pistol range back stop.
    It's kinda fun sortin' out, when a major portion are identifiable as coming from my ammo/guns
