    Sorry, but I can't attribute this round of failures to temperature. Last attempt it was probably 70 or 80 degrees out, same results. I know it's a 468 page thread, and it's not your job to remember every post, but I've been here 5 or 6 times with...

    It was probably in the low 30s when I started, all done outside. Coated them cold, warmed them on the oven until they felt warm and smelled bad after about ten minutes drying in the cold, then cooked them. Tried to recoat while still a little...

    Those flakes in my picture are crispy, like corn flakes, you can pinch them and they make a noise and break. Is that normal? It's the light, and poor focus. Those boolits are wheel weights with a splash of tin thrown in.

    Ok, I'm back again, and my coating attempts have failed again. The 230gr 45s shown below were coated the same as the one in my quote, but baked around 360 degrees for a little over 10 minutes. Failed the smash test. The 40 grain 22s were done...
