I don't remember ordering any of the ASK, but it has been a long time. It does look like AS packaging, so that may be it. Thanks!

I like KRAG. Stands up to stress and cleans out of bead holes very nicely.

I've done some blown vessels and a bunch of end of mandrel beads with no problems. Just let it set up for half an hour or so before heating it if you are working heavy duty.
