I like this shape, Iíve made a clay one and got it in the oven baking. Iíll make a silicone mold of it so I can cast some cement bullets in this shape to test with my others. I like the thin edge should leave a good mark.

Got my first one out of the mold. It should weigh in around 55grams when finished drying, this one is made from rockite. One made from the quikrete should weigh between 60-65grams. Iím going to let them cure for a day or so and then put them to the use and get some slomo video of them in flight to c how they strike the target and what damage they do🤞
