9mm rattle cannisters

The last few days, I've been trying to devise a method to make rattles for my flatshad crankbaits.

I remember reading here that someone used a .22 caliber shell casing with a few bb's.

I've decided to try 9mm casing because they're a bit larger, about right for the musky class baits I make, and hopefully will rattle louder when buried in the wood.

I made one out of a metal container which looks something like a miniature lipstick tube complete with cap and it rattles great, but I had only one.

So, I'm going to give the 9mm casings a go but I'm trying to figure out a way to seal the open end after placing the bbs inside and I'd prefer that it be a metal seal so as to give the shot something to bounce off of and something that won't create a soft spot for the bb's to get stuck to...

Any ideas?

i use 10mm brass tube and seal it with a piece of tin taped in place and then epoxied into the lure body.i only put 2 bb's in each tube as this seems to give off the best rattle. each chamber is 15mm long and i fit them across the body(make gliders and flippers for pike)
