Oh, and you misspelled it------boolits, no hyphen.
Ok, makes sense now. I had to laugh when I read the post in the link you provided where another forum doesn't allow the use of "boolits".
Thanks for the link, I didn't know there was a site dedicated to cast bullets, oops boolits. A great new place for information.
Oh, and you misspelled "miss use". Should be "misuse". Unless you know some one named Miss Use.
