I have been watching tons of YouTube vids on shaking cast bullets in a number 5 container. I've tried it several times and the powder won't stick. I tried to heat up the bullets at 170 degrees and try it...powder won't stick. Then if I bump the heat up I get mess as I posted earlier. It seems like there is no middle ground I've been finding with the heat thing. I think I might have found the issue. I have fluxex with candle wax. The bullets feel a little waxy and what tipped me off is when I immediately quench after casting my water becomes cloudy...I think this is the wax residue floating around. Could this be my issue and if so how to I remove it so I can get powder coat to stick? I might just cave and pick up a harbor freight gun.
