My family opens presents on Christmas Eve too
Anyway, I am now a student of the craft... of bullet casting!
I asked for it, but my folks got me a Lyman Big Dipper furnace kit, a Lee .375 conical mold for my '51 Navy, and a small starting supply of lead. I'm the only gun guy in the family, so I have to help them out with these things.
Still, they surprised me with some gun-related books, a nice set of earmuffs and some splatter targets for the range.
Needless to say I'll be spending my day tomorrow casting up some conical bullets
