    What a wonderful ending to a dangerous situation, I expected more deaths but I am glad I was wrong this time. The thing that inspired me was the bravery and cool heads of those young boys, I for one would never have handled that situation well....

    I tend to agree that water quality may well cause flaking, I actually started water quenching to speed up my process and have had no adverse effects, I use a clean plastic bucket and replace water often. I will admit that I will not be doing so...

    I don't know what you guys are drinking but wish I had some. On a more sober note, I met an old gent last week I had not seen in 3 years, he asked if I still cast and coated my own projectiles and of cause he managed to get a couple hundred out of...

    I can now state with certainty that water quenching cast as they drop from the mould, does not cause flaking, if a good alloy is used, in my case Lino. I would suggest that water quality may play a good part perhaps. I suspect that quenching with a...

    I feel you may well be right with that assumption Joe, I have been water quenching for years with no ill effect however I feel that a suspect alloy that may allow bonding of the coating may fail with water quenching as you say. I am doing some...

    It does not surprise me that the 458 Socom needs gas checks, my 458wm will not group without gas checks, yet my 357 maximum rifle loves the Lee 158gr PB at 2200 fps. Regards Stephen

    I save all my plastic powder containers and put my cast in those after they have been HI-TEK coated, I put fresh cast ones in plastic ice cream containers till they are coated. I prefer plastic as an accident makes it hard playing 200 pick up around...

    It is ironic that this thread should come up now, I only just coated some .357 and .460 cast last week and found the coating could be picked off. I thought I had thrown all my badly contaminated lead in the sinker bin. I think I will have to do some...
