    I would not suggest shooting these at all. Coating has not bonded to alloy. The ones you showed, should not pass smash test, and coating will flake off. The colour you obtained is well over cooked, but that is not a problem. Lack of coating...

    Well Hello Joe, Just wondering, why you would coat 4 times? If you are getting any colour bleed with test, generally it is due to under baking and will happen with every coat. Coating several times, does not fix the colour bleed. Which colour...

    You can use the 500+ as sizing lube, but it is not Water based and more expensive.. The sizing lube is the Aqualube 5000 product.

    Nooooo, that is not coooool, LOL LOL if I recall, someone in US actually frozen the baked on coating down to minus 45C, (that is really cool), to see what would happen after getting back to room temperature. Guess what, coating worked just...

    Hello Slide, I hope that I can attach them correctly. As per Ausglocks comments, when picture of alloy coated with 2 coats of Kryptonite Green, was enlarged, Ausglock found it difficult to determine where alloy finished and coating started. I...

    For people who wish to know, Ausglock has cut in half a 9mm projectile, that has had two coats of Hi-Tek baked on it. He took a picture of the face of the half section. The picture was enlarged drastically until projectiles was about 14cm wide....

    TonyN This type of result is generally caused by tumble coating too long until you are getting a sticky surface. This causes uneven coats, which will not level out with baking. That is why you are getting an uneven finish.

    Why don't you just look at on this web site where they talk and advise about quench hardening. Not all alloys will be suitable for quench hardening. If you were already aware that your 9mm was too soft, why are you surprised at poor results ...

    used by rein baking, The colour bleed occurred with the Reds. These were over loaded initially to try to overcome the browning effect of the baked resin.

    Thanks Joe for the info. So it looks like from reading the MSDS that copper sulfate is relatively safe until it is heated above 750 F. I don't have a thermometer on my smelting operation so will probably use the Lee pot with the PID to help...
