    Anyone heard of TechLead or LeadTech?

    I was at a local 3 gun competition and there was a sponsored shooter there from that company. He was shooting 9 mm pistol bullets with some sort of clear coating. I asked about it but he didn’t know anything about the coating which I thought was pretty poor representation for the company, especially for being a “sponsored shooter”. I couldn’t find any info about them on Google. Just wondered if anyone has heard of this company?

    Nope the name is not Hi-Tek. He had one of those fancy shirts on with the company name printed all over it but I didn't take the time to get the correct spelling.

    Clear PC boolitz made from a technetium (Tc99m or tech) generator core? Usually about a 96/3/1 alloy

    Dunno. The tech part may have been a lead source reference. 2:1 core lead with Lino makes a textbook hardball alloy if I recall correctly.

    No, its not Federal but thx for your response. They are clear coated boolits. The guy had his "sponsors" name on his shirt and it was boldly printed as "Lead-Tech or Tech-Lead". I just can't remember the correct name or spelling of the company and Google searches don't reveal anything with either spelling.
