    Wrong... keep the temp and vary the time. Heavy bullets will take longer at the same temp. It all comes down to how long it takes to get 2.5kgs of alloy up to temp. eg:250 125gn 9mm bullets compred to 150 230gn 45 bullets, both bake for the same...

    Now... That is the colour DG730N should be. good job. Our SIB green is lighter because it is a different green.

    Yep. The first one I got was relay, so I unsoldered the relay and did the mod too.

    search ebay for rex C100 PID for SSR....NOT RELAY!!!!! a 25 to 40amp SSR and a 100mm long K sensor in the 100 to 500Deg C range is all you need.

    I have a Lyman 230gn RN mold that throws small .450. would not shoot well when lubed with White label lube. 2 coats of HITEK brought the dia up to .452. It now shoots fine. one of my favourite 45 bullets.

    Burnt Fingers I am wondering what is the thickness that you achieve with the Hi-Tek coatings? Generally two coats applied to cast provides about 1.8-2.2 thou with two coats. Some like to coat much thicker, but reality is that in majority of...

    Gatch If the over cooked casts pass all tests, they will work OK. Unfortunately colour suffers. We have had dark green baked at 200C for days. It all was Black, but was best performing despite colour.

    Yep.. Way over temp. That DG730N should be a dark green. Use 6mls to 250 of those bullets. About 2.3Kg. Go to the chemist and get some 10ml syringes. cheap as chips. Add a few mls of Metho to the mix. that will slow down the flashing off of the...

    Hold them outside in the sunlight. If they sparkle, ie: look like metalflake paint, they have the metallic component.

    You could also "mine" the stop butts at COB for bullet metal. Be aware that the lead in plated bullets is very soft and is not good to mix in with cast bullets.

    Hi Gatch Buying mould and doing your own becomes far more economical despite initial set up costs. As Ausglock said make your own. Much better. If you are a keen shooter and use a lot, home cast is not so good unless you have plenty of spare time...

    SAndy37 when using Bicarb Soda to neutralise Hydrochloric acid you end up with Sodium Chloride in water, (essentially salt solution) Not a hazardous material. Even if using excess Bicarb soda it is not hazardous, as non neutralised acid.

    Hello Petander They are interesting projectiles. What sort of gun are they shot from? The dark appearance on the acid soaked alloy seems to have disappeared. That gold looks pretty good.
