    Looking like powdered sugar before being baked contrasts nicely with the lead making the clear easiest to judge how even the pre-baked coating is. Sort of like going to the bakery and noticing the donut showing through the sugar coating. I like...

    I chucked up a drill bit and put a piece of hardwood in the machine vice on my drill press. I drilled a hole in the wood and un-chucked the drill bit and forced it into the hole in the wood. Then I lightly chucked boolits in the drill press...

    Easiest coverage using ''shake and bake'' is what gives me the most enjoyment. Hence clear coat. Goes on white and is the easiest for me to gauge even and complete coverage. And I have grown to actually prefer over the other colors. However I...

    I had the Kaboom in a Glock when the case ruptured right in the unsupported area of the chamber, but still did not realize there was much difference in the diameter of the chambers. The barrel and slide appeared unscathed. The magazine reusable...

    I think I am going to have Erik do my Accurate 45 ACP powder coat design (252-Z if my memory is correct) in a penta hollow point for my XDS. I have pushed it up over 900 fps, but don't want to feed it a steady diet of those out of the 3.3'' inch...
