    CamoWhamo That is interesting, I wonder why bench rest is biased left and freehand is to the right? Any way, you have done well with the accuracy you obtained at 25 Yards. That is great grouping. I have reports of 100 and 200 yard shots being...

    CamoWhamo That is a great report. It is detailed so all can see what happens with various loads and accuracy, and comparing lube and coated alloy.. Just curious, what was distance to the target? It is interesting that both lubed and coated pills...

    CamoWhamo, The coating looks great, but a little over cooked. No problem at all, as long as it passes all tests OK. When loading and crimping, be careful that inside edge of case is not pressed too much onto alloy, as it can cause shaving of...

    Grmps great results. They certainly look well done. You have applied just enough coating without over use. It will be interesting to get results of shooting these.

    I think Petander also touched on this point, as well with others, who actually discovered that about 2 thou works. Petander used I think 3 coats(very diluted mixtures) to get his finish.
