I whittled away at my collection of wheel-weights.
I used a mini-muffin tin for a mold. The cardboard and bricks are splash-guards.
I weighed one muffin. It was 9.5 ounces or enough lead to make 25, 158 grain bullets (or 33 125 grain bullets)
That works out to a bit less than 300 bullets per cycle.

A trip to the dentist
I spent 90 minutes in a dentist's chair this morning.
I am getting a crown for one of my molars.
If you want practice praying under trying circumstances, try praying in the dentist's chair. If you can pray while pummeled while the dentist is drilling your tooth than you can probably pray almost any where, any time.
One of the differences between this time and the last time I had a crown installed was the nature of the temporary crown. The last time it was a soft, metal crown that I crunched down on and it conformed to the opposing molar. This time it was a "composite" temporary that is supposed to be much more durable.
I suspect that some of my dentist's patients got frozen out in the first lock-down. They had temporary crowns intended for two-weeks usage and ended up waiting four months for the dentist to reopen.
In light of the hype about the "second-wave" I am glad my dentist installed a temporary crown that is more permanent than the previous technology.
Imagine my surprise to learn that I needed to fill out a FAFSA application for Belladonna's training.
Back in 2007 (oldest kid) I had been told that once my kid had their B.S. or B.A. they were considered adults and were on their own.
Things changed in the last 13 years. I had to fill one out because Belladonna is less than 24 years old. She could apply for grants or scholarships unless we filled one out.
Between the dentist and the FAFSA, I was in a grumpy mood today.
Melting lead and thinking about making projectiles was good therapy.
