    I'll have to coat some of mine, i have flying rats that drive me crazy at home, would be handy if it made them hit the target better :)

    They really do look great. I was thinking about giving it a go with some .22 slugs but thought i'd end up getting coating pooled in the hole in the base, so it would be inconsistent.

    I wonder why your projectile got stuck, even with poor coating, the press should have had enough power to push it free, hopefully the lead melting point wasn't enough to anneal the die. Nice job on the ceracote, i'd like to give that a go on a...

    I'm thankful that i haven't had any issues, hopefully never will. If the issue is caused from oxygen getting under the coating, causing oxidization, hopefully i'll be ok as i use heat sealed bags to package mine off, keeping out as much oxygen as...

    I never really thought about the physical bond, but it makes sense. Paint wants a primer to get into the pores to grab hold and not work on essentially, suction to hold it on. It needs to actually stick. I never really thought about the...

    I'd like to think the ones with flaking issues just weren't applied correctly before storage. Sadly i don't have any that are of a significant age to test, they all get slung down range before they have a chance to age :)

    They look great. I hope to sling some k15 black on some 125rn tomorrow if i get time. I found a generous coat helps fill the lube groves too. I was running 20g to 120ml acetone. I haven't had issues with needing to slow down rhe solvent evaporating.

    I automated mine based on the wyman/hatch setup, it's not as fast as a commercial machine, but it mostly keeps up with how much casting i need to get done. That little machine has cast a good 4-500,000 projectiles, the bare machine was bought used...

    Lucky friend, i never see any good deals on presses, or if i do, they are snapped up in seconds. I'm like that with my automated master caster, i couldn't go back to casting by hand. I wonder if they ever decided to ban ALL our guns, if they...

    Nice job, hand sizing was my least favorite part of casting my own. My wife looked daggers at me when i sized in front of the tv with a bench and my trusty push trough sizer. Yet she had no issue spending the money i got when i sold any projectiles,...

    That is an option if the stepper doesn't work. Parts are already on the way. Look like the mr bullet feeder motor

    I'll do my best to set it up in the next few days, it may look ugly, but does the trick. That is a pretty good idea, i powered mine from a 12v SLA with a speed control from ebay, it mostly keeps up but i do have a bunch of old lappy power packs....

    I recently got my collator running too. At full speed i can do j just under 3k per hour. I could over drive the motor to go faster but then i have a possibility of projectiles nor dropping fast enough and jamming up on me. I need to get a video of...

    I never actually ran mine over a chrono before i blew it up, we just do club level, so PF doesn't really come up. I think the last IPSC match i did was river city open in 2007, was an awesome weekend. I used the exact same load here. Sure wakes...

    It amazes me that you can fit 4 grains of 70 in there with that much projectile in the case. I don't shoot .357 sig, so i don't understand why they want such a heavy pill, i'd have thought it would be moving a lot slower so you have more drop at...

    ****, have fun moving those buckets. When i dump mine into buckets, i work out where i want them to stay and fill them. I'm not going to even attempt to move a bucket with 120kg of lead in it.
