    I use a scale and a syringe. It makes an amazing difference.
    Semper Fi!


    Currently casting for .223, .308, .30-06, .30-40 Krag, 9mm, .38/.357, 10mm, 44 Mag and 45 ACP.

    I like strange looking boolits!

    Consistency comes from repeatability.

    To state the obvious, neither consistency or repeatability will give you success. There are some people in our world that are crazy and will consistently and repeatedly do something getting a failed result and wonder why?

    Has anyone tried to apply Hi Tek to the bullet with a small paint brush? I know your thinking why do this. But I have an idea.

    My granddaughter and I tried it. The hi-tek didn't want to adhere to the bullet very well. But,this doesn't mean that you can't get it to work. You never know what you can do until you try!
    Boolits !!!!! Does that mean what I think it do? It do!

    Avenger, to stand a chance of this working I think you would have to use a high percentage of denatured alcohol to acetone to slow down the rate of evaporation to get the HT stain applied smoothly. -- Just my 2 cents worth.

    "thumbs up"

    my syringe is also the stopper for the bottle i mix in, so when not applying coating, its stopping any evap' from the mixture.

    For those that may be trying to contact Joe Ban directly, he is having a lot of trouble with accessing the internet. He is in the process of changing service providers and hopefully will be back online in the very near future. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you think I can be of assistance to you.

    ha... was talking to him this morning.
    Internet providers are worse than used car salesmen for him at the moment.
    He is not a happy old fart...

    Hi all,
    Finally I am back on line but at a different email address.
    I have satellite Internet, that is supposed to be the ants pants.
    What I found out is that my previous supplier was conning me, as soon as each month account started, in 2-3 days I was out of data download during peak period, then, they simply shut down my ability to get emails and surf the web.
    They never advised me that I only had 4 gigs of data available despite selling me a plan of 40 gigs. The 36 gigs were only available at 2-5am in the mornings when I am trying to sleep.
    They took my money but I did not get the service.
    NOW they are gone, good ridding's.....

    With your Green, I am glad that you have had success.
    In what ammo are you using it? Can you please supply more details.
    Joe
