    Thank you. It's what I do to 'displace' wax when I don't have enough bullets to cover the pan. Plus, that jar makes a nice handle when removing it from the pan.

    Those are lyman cast from 457125 mold (500 gr) with a 20 to 1 lead.
    That brass piece is a 38-55, perfect for push the boolits out of the bottom.

    We're getting a jump on the Easter Bunny with these rainbow powder coated .45s.
    They may be a little cheesy but hey, "Everything's better when it sits on a Ritz!"
    There are so many calibers and bullet designs because there are so many different targets... the target is everything.

    I really like both this month's shots. Big Mak's pan of 500 grainers -- now how cool it that! And Team Termath -- yikes -- that's as good as any professional calendar shot!

    Here's my shot: Bee Bullets and the lube that I wish was already on them! But I have my Star .226 die coming from Lathesmith (thanks Chris!) which will make this not such a looong process.
