    I got my new mold up and running tonight. No lube groove bullets are way easier to cast. Last time i baked hitek i had just fitted a pid to my convection oven. The coating was flakey compared to the previous time with no pid. The temp seemed...

    Thanks Popper. Would you envisage if you had same result if the soft alloy was Gas checked and coated as well? From what I have seen over years, most waxes really cannot stop Leading, especially soft alloys. On another track would sizing...

    Base dipped in liquid color/catalyst mix only, no acetone. Lube used was BLL. Had problem with BLL only and SOFT alloy leading on first shots. HiTek is enough to prevent initial base gas cutting that the BLL doesn't get blown off. Hi Popper,...

    Hi Popper, That looks great. Did you dip casts into suggested mix to act as a gas check? If not what recipe did you use? I find it interesting, that you ended up using soft Lead to get those speeds and accuracy and not have a problem. Your...

    How are you doing Gremlin. I missed your great inputs. Unfortunately, or fortunately, I make coatings, advise on coatings and hopefully pass on some information that may be useful to users. However, I may not put my comments in such a way that is...

    benellinut, I tried coatings on Aluminium previously. No success. I am almost 99% sure that Aluminium and other more reactive metals cause poor adhesion of coatings. I am aware, that many coatings that are applied to various Aluminium surfaces...

    jmort, Interesting comment. I find it difficult to accept that by coating that bullet with Powder coating will eliminate the Leading. I have to presume that the powder coating can't correct the very small bearing area of that specific...

    Presently my thoughts are to run Hi-Tek only in pistol/revolver loads and stay with Powder Coating for the rifles which are 90% of my shooting. I'll certainly make up some rifle loads with Hi-Tek for testing but I know I can run Powder coated gas...

    Trevor shoots a lot himself so he makes quite a few, but now demand for his coated cast is huge, so he works like a robot every spare minute.

    Gohon, I am a little puzzled about "not as slick shiny as powder coat." Attached is pictures of a couple of coated projectiles. They seem pretty slick & shiny to me. I don't know how they compare to powder coating though?

    Thanks Popper, I was just thinking (that is dangerous), I wonder if the powdered versions are made into a sticky paste consistency with MEK or Acetone, and bases dipped, how would such brew work after drying and baking? All coatings should...

    I just want to make sure I understand what you are trying to find out. Are you trying to see if the coating can protect the base from pressure? Heat? I mean the coating is meant to be just a lube. Granted, a high temperature lube. But still a...

    Avenger, your observations may be correct. I am aware, that liquid versions do build viscosity, so a suspension may be more stable and slower to settle. Powdered coatings, not being in solvent systems may be much more stable with viscosity build....

    Hello Slide, I agree with you 110%. Avenger442 is doing a great job with this. What is now very pleasing is, that I have stated many times, that the Hi-Tek coating, is not what fails or not performs, but all engineering areas require to be fixed...

    Over tumbling will lead to rough looking bullets. 15-20 seconds is all you need, especially in hot weather.
