    How I Roll

    I have a good bit of Prismatic Powder I. Sage I bought on sale a year or two ago. It costs great. Here is how I coat...

    I use the container the BBs came in. I throw my powder and a double handful of bullets in. Put the top on and shake for a minute. If they aren't coated good put more powder in, shake longer, or both.

    This is what it looks like coated. It's ready to separate the BBs and bullets.

    I use a perforated thin metal tray I got from the grilling section at wal mart. It is small enough to set inside of a plastic bowl. Pour about half into the perforated tray and jiggle it back and forth. The BBs fall out of the bottom into the bowl. Dump that into your tray lined with nonstick aluminum foil and then do the other half.

    I shake the baking tray a little to get rid of the pile of bullets from where you dumped them. It is fine if they touch. Trust me- it's ok.

    I bake mine at 16 minutes on 400 degrees.

    When you take them out all of the bullets will be stuck together. Separate them by rolling your gloved hand over them. They separate very easy and do not restick fo each other. Even if some do not break apart (which will happen) it's not the end of the world. They come apart easily when cooled and still shoot fine.

    I've learned the hard way to be sure to get all the BBs out. They melt into a little mess if you miss one or two

    once they have cooled you can get them off pretty easily though
