    I've got quite a few flat backs too.
    After ramming it and flipping over, I run my finger around the edges and slightly recess the sand. The cope then has a tiny overlap to prevent the flash. Works pretty good.

    Wow, getting lots of great tips for avoiding flashing here, especially considering it's all based on a casting that only had a little bit of it! Thanks guys, keep'em coming!
