    I use 40, 44 and 45 for Metallic Sillywets. Also 45ACP for "Wild Bunch" all on a Hical permit. I used a 10mm ball nose and it works great in the 40S&W with 2 coats of HITEK

    Ball end slot drills and end mills do good work. I opened up a 40cal TC mold to make 210gn RN molds. Only problem is that they become flat base...I hate flat base bullets.

    I think it has a lot to do with the poor bearing surface. All the little grooves seem to cause the bearing surface to strip when engaging the rifling. especially when pushed fast in 9mm or 38Super. The 45 was just very poor accuracy and tumbling.

    Both. The 228gn 45 tumbled badly. The 9mm TL bullets leaded like buggery. Go buy some decent molds from Tom @ accurate molds in the US. his molds are first rate.

    Always do 2 coats. K15 covers very well. Overbaking is no problem as black is black. I have never had good results with coated tumble lube bullets.

    Tazza, I suggest, that you use iron filing, or get machine shop granular Iron/steel. The finer you can get with this iron/Steel the better. Put this onto your molten Lead that has the dross and stir carefully. The iron will react with the Lead Oxide...

    Hunter, You can get rid of Zinc by various ways. 1. Use Lead Sulphate from old car batteries, The Zinc will react with this and release Lead, and then form Zinc Sulphate dross. 2. You can also use Copper Sulphate, available from most agricultural...

    Hunter, I believe that the Lead was far too hot, and was reacting with Oxygen to form the Yellow form of the Lead Oxide. By your stirring you constantly exposed more Lead to Oxygen to form more Yellow Lead Oxide, which became airborne dust. Very...

    Lead hardness depends on what calibre you shoot. Range reclaim works fine for 38 Special and 45ACP. You need harder for 9mm etc.

    The test shows Titanium at 1.2%. That is a strange metal to have in a Lead alloy.

    My theory is not theory at all. It is quite possible that your alloy simply ends up with Yellow Lead Oxide and no Gold from Hi-Tek coatings. Here, the Gold coatings have been used for 20 plus years in indoor and outdoor ranges and in very high...

    WOW, that looks really bad. It can only be Yellow Lead oxide, as Zinc, and its oxides are white not Yellow. Do you have the analysis results. It may shed some light on what was found.

    Hi Stephen, Sulphur at melted Lead temperatures would evaporate and or catch fire. Melting point of Sulfur is much lower that Lead. You mentioned Zinc removal, this is an important area. If casts are made with Zinc contaminated Lead, if it is...

    Petander, I think your Yellow dross may be solved. There are two forms of Lead Oxides. PbO (lead (II) oxide, litharge) : red PbO (lead (II) oxide, massicot) : yellow (Same chemical formula, different crystal structures) It seems, that you...

    The longer you can leave the HITEK coated before baking, the better. The coating needs to be ABSOLUTELY DRY before baking. this is the biggest problem people have with HITEK failure. I warm my coated bullets so they are warm when you put your hand...

    G'day. Depends on how many you plan to produce. I HITEK coat. but I produce large volumes of cast bullets. HITEK is better commercially as you get fast, easy to handle production. If you were doing small volumes, the Powdercoat would probably...
