    I spent a few hours the other night casting for my .45 and I had a blast. I only put out about 325-bullets but it's more than I had when I started. I'm going to pick up a bucket of wheel-weights from a tire store here in about a day or so and I'll see if I can't cast some more a few nights this next week!!
