    Exactly my method as well. I must say I am "relieved" to hear that the thickness of the non stick foil is also a problem in your neck of the woods...I thought that it is only here in Darkest Africa that we have that problem I must say that I am managing 2-3 sessions with my foil, but mostly only 2, luckily they are not to dear and one roll goes a long way for me.

    Thank you I like this idea very much. Going to try it with some Lee 55 grain 22's.

    Mine look just like these except a little longer and a little skinnier. 4 fit in my Oster countertop convection oven with a little room to spare. Each will hold about 3.75 lbs of bullets and I can load them with 1 hand while opening and closing the door with the other.

    I've got an Avantco pizza oven waiting for the Oster to die. The mesh trays are too long so the door won't close. Sideways I can only get 1 mesh tray in sideways on 2 of the shelves. I'm gonna have to get some like Fred has.
