What do you guys use to wet mold your bullet pouch? I used round balls which left impressions on the outside of the ball bag, it actually looked cool so I left it that way… Do you guys use rice? Sand? Just curious… Thanks
 
I usually don't.
When I molded my Lyman belt bag I used heavy duty plastic bags full of lead shot, # 7 1/2 if I recall.....

Before molding,

I'd forgotten but I also wet molded my goat leather shot pouch, and it is the only pic I can find of the bag of shot,

I usually prefer my ball pouches soft, like deer hide, so they don't rattle. Hard wet molded cowhide could act like a maraca (spelling?)
