Thread: HFPC Boolits..Piglet Method

  1. #21
    Anyone know of a method for testing abrasion? Kinda coming up short here.
    They call it "common sense". Why is it so uncommon?

    This has been my best results with the piglet method so far. Better, but not good enough.

    I hope you intend to shoot those without a gas check. That's thick! The 311-230's I did were not to far off of those. My coating was just a little thinner. This would be viable for subsonic work if I could get like 4 MOA at 50 yards. Right now I can get 2 MOA at 50 with 45/45/10. An inch at 50 is good, but I do get some leading occasionally for some reason with the tumble lube.

    Try making the mix a little bit thinner. Maybe 3.5 to 1.

    I think Gear made 1, motor driven arm inside a drum, revolution counter. Measured before & after. Probably could do the same thing but just observe the worn out size. Basically rub the test item against a steel surface at constant force and measure wear, standard SAE test method for liquid lubes.
    Whatever!

    Well...I put one pill in a drill and let it spin on a piece of metal until the drill ran out of juice and nada on the metal. Coating was still in place.

    Skip as much as I would like to I don't know if there is a benefit to this method. They look cool but...do they work? I want to know if there is an abrasion factor to these boolits....that I do not know. Until then this is putting nail polish on a pigs hoof. Yes they coat on the base too. Hence the picture of the back of the boolit that you re-posted.

    I'm confused. Aren't you talking about the 8 BHN bullets shown in your picture? If so, why don't you know they work? If they didn't lead the barrel, and shot accurately, I'd declare that indeed they DO work. With regards to abrasion, I think the test is that the bullet doesn't shed its "jacket" in the barrel or during insertion into the case. Other than that, I wouldn't care.

    I cast about 150 8 BHN bullets tonight that I'll be coating with HF paint tomorrow and shooting this weekend. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. This would be the holy grail of lube!

    My bad, I hadn't read all the posts when I asked, I get that's it's a different product. Thanks

    That's funny right there!



    Here is a 3 coat and bake next to a single coat and bake.

    The picture does not do it justice. The lube groove is completely smooth. It's like glass.

    OK.. 3 coat and 3 bake is too thick. When I smashed the boolit it flaked off. I guess you have to keep this thin for it to work.

    Your still talking about the alternative coating, right?

    At Glock.

    Yea but if you notice the thread isn't asking about HT. The tread is about powder coat using the piglet method so why come to a thread labeled as such and start posting about HT?
