    Does anyone know what these treasures are that were on the bottom of my 168 Amax molybdenum bullets? They're magnetic.

    You're talking about a factory box of bullets correct? It looks like a machine broke on the production line or something. Are these on the bottom of every bullet?

    ETA: I take back the breakage comment. The lines are way too clean for that.

    Looks like the molybdenum pellets used to coat the bullets. Molybdenum is paramagnetic.

    Yep, the pellets they tumble them in to apply the Moly.

    So I could scrape at them and get some molybdenum powder?

    Any use for the extra moly on the bottom? Lubing a new powder drop maybe?
