ID:	116261Here's some pics of the Lee 230-5R.
    I'm going to use it tomorrow in 2 rifles.
    1st is an AR in 300 blackout over 10 grains of imr4227.
    I'll shoot the powder coated ones along side of the tumble lubed ones to see how they stack up.

    The other rifle, and you can call me crazy, is a 300 Win mag.
    I'll shoot the Lee bullet along side a Sierra 220 grain MK.
    66.5 grains of IMR 4831

ID:	116409Aman, trust me you will love it. It's all I shoot in my CZ's (and all others) and even my CZ82's love it. I am half coating (only the base and drive bands before GC) on the 312-155's that I shoot in my AR 300BO. Picture attached.

    That's a logical concern, and it's been asked by a couple others. I found a great article that explains what happens in the annealing of brass but cutting to the bottom line- brass won't start re-arranging its molecules until it hits a bit over 700F. And that to prevent ever getting close, don't exceed 450F. Should be ok.

    Ya gotta have a pic or your post will be deleted.
    I ESPC sprayed them sitting upright, no powder got on the bottom.
    Cases went through all four dies, gun shot them, no difference. Except the ejected cases were easy to find on the ground.

    Thanks to all that have posted some pictures and are helping this post along
    http://
    These are some i was testing in my 300 BO seeing if they helped with grouping. So far all it likes are the heavies but testing is far from complete to give any final thoughts.

    Thanks, Beagle. My daughter just saw your last post. Guess which color powder I'll be buying next?

    (Hint: It's not yellow.)

    Here's some bullets I coated for the wife.

    I've posted several pics-

    AND THE COLLECTION GROWS.

    MEMBERS TRY TO STAY ON TRACK WITH THE THEME OF THIS THREAD AVOID REPOSTING THE SAME PICTURES.
    I chose to take on the task of this thread so we could have a thread that some could look at and enjoy just seeing others work. This is a team effort and if we all stick to the guide lines I feel it will be quite enjoyable to reveiw and see the progess of the progess in this new way doing things.
    Reloading to save money I am sure the saving is going to start soon
