    This starts to get interesting to me if there is no baking involved. Ate you guys using a toaster oven? Using the one in the house would be hazardous to my health.

    "Why bake it?"

    I was thinking same thing. Went to manufacturer's site and I'm thinking coat air-dry/coat air-dry/coat air-dry and then oven at 220 for 20 mins or oven dry between coats at 200 or 220 for 15 to 20 mins. It shows 250 degree Temp on product so I'm thinking to keep oven temp south of 250. But between me and AZShooter2013, he has walked the walk.

    Yes, if its no bake and passes the hammer smash i am very interested. i am basically looking to do 2 things, not necessarily together:
    1. as a carrier for hexagonal boron nitride
    or.
    2. as a neat-o colored bullet novelty for some young female shooters to color and draw on, then shoot without leaving flakes fo paint in my bore

    well the vht epoxy will handle 300 degrees, that is what I baked it at, now I think(do not know) that you would need to bake the vht one at least once, it says so on the can. by the way, the white stuff is rustoleum

    An added bonus of not baking is retaining water dropped BHN.

    Has anyone tried the smash test without baking the VHT?

    Yes, it is white Rustoleum with food coloring from Albertson's Grocery - see posts 25 and 31 and 32. His is bake and no flake. His sizing video and smash test shows good results at a fraction of the cost. It appears we may be able to ditch the expensive, complicated two part epoxy paints with high temp baking. Far less expensive, available at corner store, far easier use/apply and fantastic results. It is getting gooder and gooder.

    Good report I have had good results with Harbor Freight powder but I can assure you I will be trying this. The experimenting is as much fun as the shooting.

    The rust oleum also comes in a stainless color.

    Why not read the thread. It "... provide(s) the details of which product, and how (he) did it."

    The gloss black may get mistaken for the Teflon bullets from the 80's.

    I tried the rustoleum white stuff and after baking at above temps and time, I can scrape the darn stuff of with my fingernail! And the sizing die leaves only bare lead!

    What's up?

    I am gonna melt this batch of 60 9mm's back down and do it right......PC.


    And that was a bunch of steps I do not have to do with the gun-PC coating. I can crank out PC'd slugs 3X as fast as messing around with the cans of spray paint. And the powder coating is cheaper in the long run........a $5.50 one pound bottle coats thousands of boolits for me. And the slugs are dry, cured, and HARD in 10 minutes.

    I had always read that teflon bullets were a pea green. Have never personally seen one however...
