Heres what i would do if I were you. Keep casting boolits, loading them, and shooting them. The boolits in the picture have some flaws, but they will still shoot great. Don't flux with your welders flux...instead use a DRY stick, paint stirer, or a small dob of bullet lube (solid stuff, NOT Lee Liquid Alox), etc. Good luck!
