    Those are nice looking. I hope my first batch will turn that nice.

    How sturdy are those containers? I just notice that one of my ziplocs has a cracked bottom from the up/down shaking.

    I don’t bother with the bb’s anymore.
    Due to the price of primers, warning shots will no longer be given!

    I started my first PC with one of the tall ones. Couldn't figure out how to get the bullets out, so I dumped it in a flat one. Now that l've seen your sifting arrangement, I'll have to get some more "tools"
    Happiness is a Warm GUN & more ammo to shoot in it.

    My Experience and My Opinion, are just that, Mine.

    What are using to seperate the BBs?

    They are about the same thickness as the ziplock but cheaper.

    I haven't found the need to shake the bowl, I swirl for 30 seconds then slowly flip the bowl over twice and I'm good.

    Do you get thick spots on the sides, from the pc as it melts and cures, as opposed to standing them on bases ?

    I haven't noticed any thick spots when I mic the boolits the measurements are fairly even except at the joint.
    I shake/sift off all the excess PC

    They look very good. It looks like your method would be quicker than standing every bullet up.
    Nice!

    The sift and dump method doesn't work with all PC's or colors. Some PC's have better results with this method than others.

    this blue is middle of the road good.
