    Contrary to the laws of physics, this is one time when "adding" something would actually reduce the weight.

    I should have quoted post #8 from longbow, "In retrospect yeah if Blammer or Waksupi have any extra lube grooves that would be your easiest solution. I think those accessory lube grooves just stretch over the boolit then roll them into place... right?"

    A conundrum, I tell ya', a real conundrum.

    Your best method is re-melt and re-cast with a mould that casts the boolit you want.

    Here is a link to a Vendor Sponsor thread on the Ultimate Cannelure Tool which can put a wide cannelure on your boolit:

    I've got some High Tech moulds with smooth sides on the way now. I was planning ahead and I got my UCT a while back.
