They call that a wave washer,check the local hardware stores,Grainger or auto parts stores they seem to have stuff Lowe's never carries.

I give up, what are you casting Saturday? Looks like a big Keith pistol boolit, possibly Lyman moulds. Still too hot here to get serious about casting, gotta live vicariously sometimes.

Today was the 3rd day of under 100 degrees in the last six weeks or so. More than a few customers are small cattle ranchers and have sold their entire herds. No water, no grass, no herd. Entire lakes west of here are dry. Some areas' last precip was a snowstorm in February. Very sad.
Gentle rain was falling early yesterday morning when I let the dog out and I stood in the open door (in my underwear) laughing like an idiot.
Get your ribeyes now and freeze them. Sale barns are running at capacity so beef may be at a low point today.
Too hot to do much smelting or casting but someday soon I'll start on the projects I put on hold months ago. Been doing a little smelting and test-boolit casting but nothing serious. Ordered a Lee six-cavity TL452-200 mould, handles and sizer today but need to score at least 100# of WW's to make it thru the winter.
Your new mould looks like a 158 grainer, maybe heavier. Looking forward to a range report.
