    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-

    My first picture I posted elsewhere, and comments were mostly - "Hey those look like the lipstick samples from the 1980s! I said it isn't the 80s and this looks more like lipstick to me!

    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.

    Here is what is under the foil:

    Makes the bases come out nice and clean, with a little wrap-around effect.

    I can see the nuts on top of the foil getting coated and not working twice. I tried to make some rings to hold my longer heavies that tip over to easy but after one use the ground was lost. Not at contact on the bullet but on the ring hanging on the metal rod.

    These are 30 cal more of a test to see if my rack worked not one of my go to bullets in my rifles.

    I got my Carolina Blue from Smoke in this weekend! One coat DT.


    Here it is compared to his standard blue.

    ESPC'd some 40s and 45s today, with Tiffany Blue from The Powdercoat Store. It went on very easily and cooked up delicious.

    I did a few cases while I was at it. The pic is fuzzy like the powder, and was taken after removing the marbles set on top while spraying.
