    you say a big eye hole? must be some big bullets. i use flats mostly, and pyramids depending on the situation. bullets are fine but tend to roll in current more.

    sorry, it took some time to get the whole question....bullets or eggs i let slide down to the hook placing a bead in between. you can use them on a three way placing a barrel swivel below the sinker or can use a barrel rig....i don't like the barrel rig as much, seems to snag up more.

    We usually mold all our big no rolls, and have get togethers to make sinkers often.Collect some lead and try to make the next get together and we can fix you up for the season.just pm ramrod for the details

    Where do you live at in Ohio? Ohio Valley Bait & Tackle in Yorkville, Ohio sell very large sinkers. Another plus to that is, they are right near Pike Island Dam (about a half mile or so). Well got to go, the dam is calling me:smile2: .

    Mike, if at all possible, attend a gathering in your area. There is always someone with sinker molds who is there to help. Once you see how it is to pour your own sinkers, you may want to get started in that yourself. Lot of safety things pertinent to melting lead, but learn them and comply with them... you will be okay. I was paying .45 for a 5 ounce bank sinker or .09 per ounce.. Lead (when I find it to buy) costs .75 per pound which is about .046 cents per ounce. So, I can pour twice as many sinkers for the same price I can buy them. Definetley better to pour your own, and then if your fortunate you can get your lead for free...which really saves the money.

    I agree with awshucks learn to make your own. For lead go to some independit tire shopes and ask them what they do with ther wheel weights. I did this and gave them a bucket to put them in and now I get all the lead I want usely a 5 gallon jug every 2 are 3 weeks free.
