    Bucket of boolits

    .38 with Lee 158 grain cast boolit. Single coat of Harbor Freight Red. Tumble coated, and baked in a pile, so not perfect, but nice to shoot.

    These rainbow coated .45s may be a little cheesy but hey, "Everything's better when it sits on a Ritz!"
    We can't wait to do some technicolor plinkin'.

    All right... I've been away for a while, but it doesn't mean I haven't been playing...

    Two 185gr Lee brs both from the exact same batch placed side by each and then squarshed in a vice. Very effective anneling at 12 minutes in a toaster oven at 390.

    1st attempt at PC. The 45 ACP is from an RCBS 200 GR. SWC mold using HF Red. I used the tub and swirl method with bb's. - The 9 MM is from a Mihec 359125 HP mold. Using Smoke's Bacon Grease color. I used an old Lyman vibratory tumbler with bb's and PC paint. Let it run for about 30 minutes, baked in an old laboratory oven that I procured from a school district auction for 25 minutes at 400 degrees.

    The HF red seem's to go on thick. The boolit dropped from mold at .454, after PC and baking it mic'd at .459, after sizing with a Lee push through it went back down to .452 with little or no scrapping.

    Smoke's powder was a dream to work with. Went on with just the right amount of coverage. Boolit dropped from mold at .359 and sized to .356 with Lee push through sizer with no issues at all.

    Both castings were done with range lead ingots with tin added.

    Reloading and casting are like approaching a black hole; once you pass the event horizon there is no turning back.

    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.

    Another Shake & Baker Born!

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.

    I'm getting ready for Memorial Day by making some Red White & Blue bullets and having a little parade.

    This is our little Memorial Day practice parade.

    The Red White & Blue marching bullets are all in orderly rows and columns.

    And then there are the technicolor parade clowns!

    Doin' The Zebra Swirl
    The rainbow has no limit once you learn the basic steps of the Zebra Swirl.
    Let's get started... and a one two three...

    The Zebra Swirl is just one of the many outlandish gyrations that'll make your poppers twist all the way to the bullseye.

    All you need is: a handful of powder coated lead bullets, assorted nail polish colors,
    a water filled shot glass (or equivalent), acetone, paper towels, toothpicks, cotton swabs and tweezers.
    That's it and you're good to go.

    Carefully float a drop of white nail polish onto the water.

    Place a drop of black on the white.

    Slowly swirl the two colors together with a toothpick.

    Carefully dip the bullet at a slight angle through your design.

    While keeping the bullet fully submirged, clear away all the remaining floating polish with a cotton swab.

    There you've got it!
    You're donin' the Zebra Swirl and the Rainbow Marble Clown and whatever other funky number you come up with.
