    My first attempt at powder coating. Well my second my first batch I left the rack up too high and melted all my bullets LOL.

    They turned out cool. Check out the video on link below. The powder coat added 2 grains to the over all weight of the bullet.

    The next ones will get loaded in nickle plated brass and look even better.

ID:	168129Put together this little fixture (Newtire New Model Almost Perfect) to hold the bolits upright for baking. Lubed boolits for illustration purposes only. It worked great except the boolits stuck to the bottom. These little plates that I bought at the hardware store had a convenient hole to knock them loose under the boolit though and it was no trouble getting them loose.

    Rockshooter came over & showed me how easy it was to do the whole powder coat & explained the principle of different electrostatic charges in the differeent types of plastic & then it all made more sense. No reason to go out & buy a bunch of sprayer equipment & try to find room for that much more stuff in my garage.

    Now, to see if these things shoot in my 6.5 X 06. The process brings the boolit nose up to fit the bore.

    Not a bullet but PC
    http://
    PTR 91 before
    http://
    After stripping down and coating avoided getting PC on things that would fight the working parts of the rifle all worked great
    http://
    A better look on why i PC this rifle she was kind of ruff in some areas
    http://
    After sand blasting then removing any oils and breaking it down some more she got sprayed and baked.
    Just a for warning to all make sure what your going to bake fits the oven this just did make it with alot of effort.
    Reloading to save money I am sure the saving is going to start soon

    These are my 200gr PB FP RCBS bullets as loaded into the 358 MGP used the the AR. The 16 inch barrel puts them out at 2,400 fps with no leading or gas system problems. They are hard cast, water dropped, dried, shaken, placed nose down in hardware cloth racks, then toaster oven cooked, run through a .358 push sizer with case lube and shot. The load is 35 gr of 1680 with an adjustable gas block using sized and fireformed Federal 6.8 SPC brass. Groups to .5 inches at 100. This is an excellent truck gun, will take a 68 Chev right off the driveway.

    Spray and bake tray 1.
    Load and spray tray 2.
    Bake tray 2 while reloading and spraying tray 1.
    Repeat a few times.
    Smile and enjoy the day.

    After reading through hours of comments about PC ing using blackBB's and a #5 Cool whip container, I have decided to try it.
    The picture here is from my current (art-form) method, using acetone/pc/slurry and a hdw. cloth tray. The wet pills are poured into the tray and baked @ 400 for 20 min.
    Next I will try the shake and bake method but I refuse to spend the time,patience, and effort to stand each bullet on a flat sheet for baking. Click image for larger version.
