    Also I found if I tumble coated too long I had more stars on one than the other.

    Thanks Grem
    I found the stars to be not vey cooperative, and they went to where they wanted. I gave up at the end as they were in control not I....

    also,i would be all over something like this.


    Your wish is my command.
    Funny you should bring this up now, as I am trying to produce a Cameo finish with several coloured options.

    i remember the days where many cars were sporting custom metal flakes paint jobs. i think it's beautyfull,and for sure boolits colored with metal flakes inserted in would be quite something different. i bet people would be all over it. now,i'm pretty sure this would add greatly to the production costs,and i don't even know if incorporating metal flakes to your hi tek fabrication process is feasable .

    Are there any differences in shooting performance between the colors? I’m referring to the powder version. I’m using bronze now and wonder if I would see any difference in performance if I switched to a different color?

    I have been using Hi Tek in this Marlin 1895CB with the intent of using it to hunt. I am still working on a load I'm happy with. It's a good hunting gun but not a target rifle yet.
    While I work at it, it is by God's grace that it happens..

    Not really. The metallics shoot the same. Bronze, Red copper, K Green etc etc..
    The non metallics just don't look as good (in my opinion) but perform the same.
    Hooroo.

    I thought Joe said the metallics had a better heat resistance and were better suited for higher velocities.

    Grmps, you are correct.
    The materials used for making coatings all reflect heat and tolerate a great deal of pressure.
    The metallic modification with these coatings so far has appeared to provide slightly better heat reflecting ability. So it is theorised, that because the short duration of cast inside bore, any extra heat generated by high velocity applications, using the extra additives in the coatings should cope with an increased heat/load..
