    Yeah, me too: I use my original wire 'grids' much more than the trivets.

    These are 6.5mm boolits on a 1/2" thick aluminum plate drilled to fit the gas check shank and covered with non stick aluminum foil.

    The other side of the plate fits the GC shanks of 30 cal. boolits.

    Oven liner has most everything beat. cheap. nothing sticks lasts just shy of forever. Have tried foil but it is not in same league Can pick up corners and drop directly into ice water. Oven liner can be replaced with grill vegetable liner. it is liner used on grillsThese solve problems which makes the process a lot more uniform

    Home Depot. It's called an egg crate light diffuser. Easy to cut to whatever size you need.

    Hi, TYVM for this info! Am always looking for something that will work or possibly outshine other methods for me.

    I also tried the silicone hexagonal divots (HABCAN mentioned) for some 30/30's and they did work very good for me . but...... the boolits were already GCed so they were contained well in the divots and did not fall over.
