    Sunday is NASCAR Sprint Cup Day. I've always been fascinated by the bright shiny paint jobs and
    wild color schemes.

    It's as if I'm watching some frantic rainbow arcing across a blacktop oval.
    Of course I have to admit the the real draw is the noise, the smoke and the flames.
    As a kid I always liked the flames especially those articulated on hot rods.
    I guess that's what attracts me to the retro fire red flames blazing the deep yellow of the Pennzoil 22 car.
    But Sunday is also Shootin' Day when Cyndi and I go plinkin'. That's a real dilemma.
    Ah! I've got it. I'll bring NASCAR with us to the BLM by making up a batch of retro-flamed powder coated plinkers!

    All the bullets were first powder coated with the shake-n-bake method. The rainbow marbles were produce by floating several colors of Krylon spray enamel on luke warm water. Then the paint was gently swirled and the bullets slowly submerged through the enamel. After air drying the enameled bullets were baked again at 200F for 10 minutes to produce a hard finish.
    After shank-n-bake powder coating the bullets they were ready for their retro flames. Now the fun begins and you've got to be quick! First, several colors of nail polish were carefully floated on top of a full shot glass of luke warm water. Then the flame design was "stroked" through the colors with a toothpick. Finally the bullet was slowly submerged through the floating design and held under while the residual color was cleaned from the surface before removing the bullet from the glass. These are then set to dry. The lacquer nail polish dries hard enough to not require oven tempering.
    I prefer round nose bullets for these paint jobs and am waiting on some new .357 & 9mm molds. I'll post step-by-step snaps then.

    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'.

    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.

    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.

    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!
