    The best sizing dies available anywhere in the world are made by Lathesmith, A member here on this forum. The short dies are what I use in the magma Sizemaster.
    Also used by commercial manufacturers.
    Contact him for pricing.
    Hooroo.

    Well done Michael,
    May be you should do more such seminars, that will also empower hobbyists with being confident with casting their own.

    Thanks Joe

    Thats the whole reason for this. Some guys just don't have the confidence. Casting like reloading can be pretty intimidating when you read about it. We all know it's not rocket surgery.
    As we went through the day and guys worked their way to the furnaces to cast, I would watch over their shoulders and once they poured their first mould full I would say "there you go, now you're officially a bullet caster" It's that simple.
    The best part is guys walking away with confidence and with bullets ready to shoot. Everyone walked away with samples of bullet lube from white label lubes and a 100 ML container of mixed up hi-tek 1035 gold to start coating on their own.
    I think we have a bunch of converts today.

    Thank you again Joe for the support and the great product. It really instils confidence in new casters to make the jump knowing they won't have issues with leading

    At first i was unsure with how it would work for me too, as i already had my process that worked for me. After this thread and a few chats with Joe, i was all set to give it a go.

    I started off with a coating i got off an industrial coating joint. I was unsure how THAT would work as first, i finally got the courage to give it a go then got my application sorted out and never looked back, well, until i needed to buy more at an outrageous cost.

    Changing to a different method has taken some doing, but it works and works well, i just need to up the scale as putting them in a plastic bottle and shaking the poop out of it does wear my arms out a bit with doing large batches, there is no real consistency with me doing it this way vs others that tumble them to coat, easy and repeatable results.

    So far the results are really good, i haven't been able to test it in an open gun yet, as after 3 years, i still don't have a replacement barrel for it to give it a really good test with my allow mixture to see how it holds up to the extra speed.

    I am and have always been a huge supporter of coated lead.

    Another use

    Hey Joe (Mr HiTek) How about this ? Another use for Hi tek coating. This knife is hand forged from 5160 steel which will rust very easily. This Hi-Tek coating has stopped the rusting issue. Only time and actual usage will tell. Did it with my heat gun.
    As you can tell it is Old Gold.

    It's a victor precision gun, he used a sheumann hybricomp. He can't get them anymore, but easily bought in the usa, the dood that makes them has no export license.

    I got tied up in the aussie copper projectile thingo. I paid him to get me one.... 2 years ago

    Hello OldBearHair,
    That is a good test also. You would have had to heat the blade and coating very hot to set coating.
    Before I was making coatings for cast, I was making a coating that would be used by industry. Some of these, required to have quite extensive and some nasty anti-corrosive additives, that guaranteed salt spray test results against corrosion.
    It is a cut throat market where competitors constantly tried to out do each other for limited sales.
    I did make some heat bonded coatings, that were used by mines for underground work, where all assembly components not only were protected against rusting, but coatings had to be electrically conductive to eliminate static build up that could cause a spark and a possible explosion.
    Again, this was a very competitive area, and all products had to meet/ & pass many tests, which cost a bomb, and for very low returns.
    Essentially, if you coat steel, and with coatings that prevent Water and Oxygen contact to Steel, it should certainly reduce rusting.
    None of the Hi-Tek coatings now contain these anti corrosive agents. They are simply not needed.

    "Hello OldBearHair,
    That is a good test also. You would have had to heat the blade and coating very hot to set coating." Thanks for the information.... ... While heating the knife it got up to 400 to 450 degrees F. which is about where it was tempered at. So now the knife has been tempered the third time. The coating looks a tad bit over baked and has interesting patterns that do not show in the picture. Conjured up in my mind how the process could be done by taping a pattern for the old Gold coating and do it again covering the old Gold with tape and using Zombie Green, and then it would be camoflage. Like opening up another "can of worms". LOL

    You could "paint" a pattern on it with hi-temp grease or? so the hitek wouldn't stick there.

    ACP was a pox on the shooting community.
    Why not get Vic to fit a Pulver barrel with one of his new VP comps he is now making?
    Hooroo.

    It may have to come to that eventually it already has a titanium comp that worked really well.

    The slide was cut for the 4 ports before the comp, i ideally wanted the same to go back in it to keep it looking fancy. There is something said for keeping major components stock, so if anything was to happen, you can get another drop in replacement. If it didn't have that rib on the top, any other barrel would do the trick.

    Yeah, it's one way to get your name known isn't it? I thought i got it bad, but there was another guy that got done for a dillon 1050 plus accessories, about 2.5k. He keeps saying that it's gonna happen, but i'm not holding my breath. A dood i shoot with, his wife is a customs broker, she is hopefully going to see if she can do something.

    Send Brian at goodbuymate.com an email and see if he can post you a barrel.

    He is a freight forwarder I have been using with good success.
