Bullet key chains....

I made a couple of bullet key chains with some boolits I culled out of the last batch. I want to make some for the nephews for Christmas but I don't want to use lead boolits. Unfortunately, I don't use jacketed. If anyone is willing to send a dozen or so I can send some cast lead or make a few of the key chains in return. I am making them in 38 special.

Why not just buy your own?
BTW, many schools will not allow those. A child bringing one into a school could get in serious trouble. I know, stupid but in the minds of a bureacrat this is a chance to act like a big shot.
I gave something similar to my daughter once and she would not take it to school.

Bullet keychains

I guess I will be buying some but I really only need 6 or 7 and I will have buy 50 or 100. I cast all my boolits for reloading and don't use jacketed. I will keep that in mind as far as the schools go and let their parents know (thanks for the heads up).

Welcome to the forum. Nice keyrings.

You might get some response if you posted your location - City & State would be a start. There might be someone two blocks away that reloads.

Do you belong to a gun club? Find out who reloads.

Do you go to a local firing range? Have they got a bulletin board?

Do you frequent a local gun store? Ask the clerks if they know someone who reloads.

Thanks. I'm in Knoxville Tn. I have asked at the gun shop with no luck. I am going to try castboolits forum next. I would be happy to trade.

Thanks for the offers but I have some lined up. Believe it or not they are from the same town as me and we had no idea.
