    OK jon,
    I've got sumthin' for ya. Look at
    http://www.corbins.com/powder.htm (the bullet people)
    For 20 bucks they will sell u 7000 grains (a pound+/-) of tungsten powder which you can pour into the nooks and crannies of those lil' switchers for extra weight. :cool:
    It is 1.7 times heavier than lead. It ain't cheap, but when I ran across it, I thought it would be ideal for my IHC's. I haven't tried it yet, but it's on my list!!! Think it'll wurk?? :D :D :D
