Was bored so I grabbed some resin and rounds and made a sphere. I’ll give it a couple weeks to fully harden, then I will polish it up glass smooth. Calibers are .308, .223, and 6.5 Grendel. Resin is Alumilite Clear Slow.

How'd you suspend the rounds in the sphere without touching the edges?

Normally I would turn them on the lathe from a cylindrical blank, but I used a sphere mold on this one. I poured it in three layers. First layer to have a flat surface for the bullets to stand on, the second layer to lock the bullets in place, then I hot-glued the top half of the mold on and poured the third layer.

very neat, indeed! would you custom make one with 3 calibers that I choose? And if so, what would this ball of joy cost me?

If I’m happy with the final result after I get it polished, I’ll message y’all. This was more of an experiment to try and do multiple pours without being able to see a seam line between the pours, is very tricky to do. The line you see around it is the mold seam and will sand off easily.
