    Hi-Tek is currently working on blue. He said he is having a problem with the pigment being consistent and will not release it until it is perfect.

    I sized some 41 cal boolits to .410" yesterday and then coated 3 times with the Red Copper. Red Copper has alot of solids in it and it added .002" to .003" to the boolits.
    I have a brand new Saeco 41 cal mold that casts undersized so I am going to test it with Carnuba Red and Hi-Tek to see if the Hi-Tek coating will be sufficent to make a larger boolit. I did contact Redding about this mold and they said it could be up to 6 weeks if they had to cut another one.
    I have the 30cal boolits cast of linotype ready to load so hopefully I can load and get to the range Wednesday when it reopens. Supposed to be up to 117 degrees the end of this week!

    Gunoil, Looking at your rack of boolits ready to go in the oven I can see where bending the sides up also allows about twice as many on the rack without falling off. Don't need much space between them to cook.

    Leadman. I have a new Lyman 452374 2 cavity that throws small (.450) the red/copper brought the size up to .452 with 2 coats. sized to .452 and now shoots fine. before they leaded and very inaccurate. The blue/green coating has far less solids in it.
    Hooroo.

    The elusive Blue.
    Still working on it.
    Just spent megabucks on equipment so I can try and produce a blue or two.
    I hope my boss does not find out the moneys I am blowing with this project. lol.
    I wonder why, any one would want a blue???

    There is a secret, hush, hush activity, to also end up with a Red. But what coloured Red, it is still a mistery until it is unsheathed.

    Coated 1000 9mm 125gr Rn last night with the HI-TEK extreme Catalyst instead of the normal catalyst.
    2 coats and the bullets are so slippery that you have trouble picking them up. Your fingers slip off them, they are that slippery.

    They glide through the sizer die with little effort.

    here is a trick. get a bucket full of your favourite bullets and try to push your finger into them to the bottom of the of the bucket.
    The HI-TEK supercoated bullets will let you get almost a full finger of depth. with the Extreme catalyst it is easy to get all the way to the bottom.
    They are that slippery.
    I'd be interested to see how people go doing this with the powder coated bullets, Just for Grins an Giggles...

    I have casters here in the local area ringing me and wanting to know if I will coat their bullets for them. It would be possible, But I'm not sure if it would pay. I'd rather they get their own coating setup and do it themselves.

    After much deliberation I'm going to place an order later. I'm excited to say the least. For those of you who have been using this stuff I have a couple questions...1. does this eliminate the need for gas checks? 2. does this product allow the use of a "softer than normal" boolit? For instance, could I use plain WW's for .357 instead of sweatening with tin or lino?

    p.s. I can't wait to get rid of my luber!

    Dryball, I will be testing some 180gr RFN 357 mag tomorrow, with and without gas checks. Also have the higher velocity 30-06 180gr boolits to test.
    I have shot 30cal 180gr 8 BHN boolits with a gas check to 1,950 fps with good results. The boolits for tomorrows test are cast of linotype.

    Dryball.
    I have been making 150gr RN bullets for 357Mag (handgun) out of 11BHN range lead. Fired in a Desert Eagle with a case full of Win 296. accurate, no leading and no fouling of the gas port.

    Gunoil. Time is relative. You can never have any spare. If you do, you are not casting or coating enough.
    Hooroo.

    I'll be watching this one with great interest. Looks very easy and you can do large amounts of boolits. Looks like all you need are lee push through sizer dies for sizing after coating.

    It also appears as if you still need to match the alloy to the application. Say heat treated boolits for higher end velocities. This coating also gives you the ability to increas the diameter of your boolits due to coating build up.

    It has been touched on briefly, but what kind of fumes are given off if you melt these boolits down in a batch of range lead? Also, has anybody tried hollow points yet? I cast my hollowpoints out of 40:1 and I wonder if this would have an impact on expansion.

    If I send somebody some soft hollowpoints, would you be interested in coating and shooting them into water jugs to see if the retard expansion?
