    Bullwolf,
    I really like that photo. I could easily see that in one of those shiney Magazines, for a tutorial article.

    Thanks JonB!

    I just put a few pieces wax paper down on the table next to my reloading bench.

    The same table does double duty as my photography bench. I'll typically put down a few pieces of white printer paper to help reflect any ambient light.

    Since this is the comments thread, I can add a few extra pictures of the TL wad cutters seated.

    This case tension picture shows the micro lube bands through the brass case.


    The micro lube bands also make for a convenient crimp groove.


    I like the fact you can easily crimp the TL wad cutter into any of the micro lube bands.
    This gives you lots of options for different seating depths.



    I sprinkled a little Motor Mica onto the above 3 boolits right after tumble lubing, and immediately loaded em. The mica really shows up in the zoomed in picture, I can't hardly see it with my naked eye. (Or it may be the flash reflected)

    TOML Gun w Cast Group

    This is the That Others May Live (TOML) Foundation gun that I built for the Foundation as a funds raiser. It is a new Remington R1s Series 80 gun converted to a Series 70, the metal has 5 surface finishes, a hammer forged cut rifled match barrel, match bushing, Novak front and rear sights, Videki trigger, Safari grip safety, extended slide stop and ambi safety, two piece guide rod with reverse plug, S&A mag well, Ironwood exhibition grade grips (made by and donated by MSGT (ret) Chuck Bebout Pres of American Handgun Grips, a cast bullet shooter), jeweled chamber hood and jeweled recessed commander style hammer. The 5 8 round magazines are all fitted and numbered to the gun. The gun will feed 8 empty cases frome each of the magazines. The trigger pull is 3 pounds. The group at the bottom was shot with the 200gr H&G Flat Base cast bullet with 5.6gr of 231 at 25 yards. The gun when raffled off raised $12,000 for the USAF Rescue community's foundation. They do good work.

    Nice grips on that one, good looking gun! No tumble lube bullets though?

    I like that pic Swede 45 posted, something about it just catches the eye.

    Sweet looking gun, I bet it'd shoot a TL boolit as good as any.

    Yeah, I love cast iron cookware.

    Nice haul from a good resource, depending on $$$. Either way, do you need an FFL type license to sell homebrew projectiles? I wouldn't mind having a part of my hobby pay for itself, which has never happened yet, e.g. electronics. woodworking, forging, etc.

    If you are engaged in business, then yes, you need a FFL-06
