    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.

    In regards to shooting safety.Until you are ready to fire, keep your booger hook off the bang switch.

    Thanks much Big Mak! I had gone through about 12 pounds of Lino with the 6-cavity Lee (about 2 1/2 hours of casting -- that's one bee-you-tiful mould), so there was somewhere north of 1600 of those 50 grain pills in the pile.

    So Mak, what should we do for April's pic do you suppose? Maybe this month is "photog's choice?"

    I got a small batch of those 22's lubed with White Label's new "blue" that I put in the old Lyman sizer and a larger batch lubed with his Carnauba red that is in the Star. Now if I could just find a nice bright white to pc some up, well maybe there'd be some sort of a patriotic theme to be developed...
