    I suppose Gas fired ovens should work. However, I would only put in a load after oven is first at correct bake temperature. That way, any moisture formed with warming oven is at same temperature as oven heated air.
    Gas Fired ovens also have a chimney exhaust which would help with ducting oven fumes outside. Do not use this sort of oven in enclosed areas. Exhaust all gaseous emissions to outside work area. Burning gas uses up Oxygen and produces CO2 and CO, and is not good being confined in a closed work area, and gasses cannot be detected.

    lol. Sounds like a good deal but I'll have to pass. :P

    Funny enough I tried to get them to swap it for a STI tactical with me paying the difference but they wouldn't do it. I won't dare complain though.

    Thanks for the tips on the Ovens. Sounds like electric might be easier to deal with.

    Fair enough. I just picked up an STI Tactical 5.0 9mm second hand, sweet shooter. The full length dust cover adds weight to the front perfectly for sight recovery.
    Hooroo.

    I have my custom 2011 race gun gathering dust in my safe for the last 2 years, been trying to get hold of a replacement barrel for it. Good note, try not to push two projectiles down the barrel at once *sigh*

    I do love the STI range, I got my hands on a used 2011 executive in .38 super, it shoots great.

    Do you know where to get hold of a schuemann hybricomp barrel from Trevor? Easily bought in America, here... not so much.

    Tazza.
    Mate give Victor a call at Victor Precision in Capalaba.
    He has Pulver, KKM, STI barrels. His comp designs are the best there are.
    I'm getting a KKM with a VP comp for the STI Tac 5 for shooting Steel Challenge with a C-more RTS2.
    Victor rebuilt my TruBor and it is a sweet shooter.
    Hooroo.

    Victor is the one that built it for me in the first place it shot awesome up to the point i killed it. He can't get his paws on Schuemann barrels anymore, they can't export and the guy he used to get them off doesn't do 'em anymore either.

    Good to hear he is making comps too, mine was an off the shelf titanium one, he was talking about making them as they were hard to get.

    His shop is walking distance from my house actually, very handy.

    Very clever

    I like it a lot. Very modern style. I don't know where or how I could use it and thank you for the offer. If you post me a photo it will be cherished.

    Just a thought, have you received your coatings? You posted that you were expecting arrival.

    A local guy coated Air Pellets. They worked great with a single coat. I believe that in Europe there is a large move towards high pressure air guns that simply eliminate need for gun powder, primers, shells reloading gear, etc.. etc.... and they are very interested in coated air pellets as they are used for hunting game.

    For the guys in Australia where is a good source of mesh for trays?
    I was thinking something a bit more heavy duty then mouse wire. Like perforated aluminum / steel.

    Stainless steel perforated plate. 4mm holes. 2mm thick. 280 x280mm with a 10mm side double bend.
    not cheap. But I have 16 of these for baking.
    Also have 16 of them, but in Mild steel for coating/ drying
    Hooroo.

    Petander, I can't see your photos? I didn't think they looked like ZG, bit too dark and a slightly "richer" green. Also, why resize after first coat? I find it works fine sizing after second coat (and it saves time). Making and coating boolits can be strangely addictive.........
