    So I heated up my Lee 20 pounder to mix up some new lead and did just that and turned it off to go eat lunch, I come back to make a run of little 22's and I find this stalagmite (or Tite?) Artwork, normally it just splatters. So if anyone is interested in this beautiful piece the opening bid is $225 :)

    Well, if your starting bid was more reasonable, you may get a bidding war for your art piece. ;)

    It would make a good paper weight. :D

    I bid 225 Vietnamese dong for it, and I will go as high as 22500 dong if shipping is included.:D

    Neat by the way.

    To late a liberal feminist from hoplophobe University bought it for a project. I'm sure good things will come out of it : )

    She knows how dangerous lead is and knows how to dispose of it. She bought it as art ,and to a profit so as not to offend Lokichoki's good nature, and promptly took it to a place that she knows recycles lead, for she cares deeply for the environment.
    This place sold the scrap lead for a naughty profit, to a metals reclaiming facility. This facility melted the lead, cleaned it and pulled it into wire. All cleaned up, this wire was sold,(Arrg! For a profit!) to a very nice bullet maker. This bullet maker turned them into seventy five grain boat tailed hollow points, polished them and mailed them to me, up here in Michigan, again making, gasp, an evil profit.
    When I received them I promptly turned them into ammunition for my target rifle, dispersing them across a vast swathe of land, back into the Earth from whence it came, posing no threat to anyone ever again.
    Thus, the day saved, I went home, kissed my two children a good night, and cleaned the tool of justice. I sleep tonight knowing that the country is just a little safer. A little more pure.:thumbup:

    In California, your art would be considered an illegal weapon of mass destruction...

    Those are very nice numbers. Just over the speed of sound where I am. How did they shoot for accuracy?

    A very excellent write up on the Ruger Ranch. Very satisfactory accuracy for such a light load. Well done, sir. I use nothing but Hi-tek coated bullets for my pistols.(except for the Eagle.) I am pleased with most brands, but I have yet to catch the casting bug. Good luck with the rest of your "Art".:)

    Thank you demi I really appreciate the positive feedback, as I plan to write more reviews and possibly start making videos it is certainly a boost being that it's my first review. Oh here's a picture of the same load but PC (Harbor freight white was not very good at sticking but the driving bands we're solid oh well) look for the data on these soon
