    Testing translucent copper color --SUCCESS

    Translucent copper color sample arrived late this afternoon

    Current weather here NOTE the HUMIDITY
    Charlotte, NC


    Updated few minutes ago
    85
    Wind: 5 MPH
    Humidity: 65%

    Used bullets that have been setting in an open container for at least a year
    did NOT do any prep to the bullets .. literally picked them out the container bare handed
    dropped in container with some bbs and a 1/2 teaspoon of powder and shook 30 seconds up and down 30 seconds then picked up with mini pliers
    placed on non stick foil and baked for 15 minutes
    Pics do NOT do it justice... sun is setting in 15 minutes so not the best time for pics
    the beauty of the translucent part is it simulates the different shades/tones you see in a copper jacket
    copper colored and VERY shiny .. It is translucent Click image for larger version.

    Good looking bullets

    my problem is I have so much of your powder in various colors I'll never use it all.

    still might need to give this one a 'go'

    This powder is even finer than the others I sell so coverage should be well over 6000-8000 bullets per lb
    Now it is slightly higher priced so probably offsets each other

    I had just posted the new pricing for all the other powders this morning (because of raw materials increases according to the MFGer) as follows

    New Pricing as of the 9/14/18 Raw Materials price increase
    1 LB Shipped in the USA is $22.00
    2 Lbs Shipped USA is $36.00
    3 Lbs Shipped USA is $50.00
    4 Lbs Shipped USA is $64.00 That's just $16.00 SHIPPED per LB
    for quantities over 4LBs Just add $14.00 per LB to cover powder and additional shipping

    This powder will be $1.00 per LB MORE or $23.00 SHIPPED in the USA

    As of right now I have 4 lbs I can ship

    so If you want any please contact me directly 704 624 4115 10AM to 6PM EST

    keep in mind we have a MAJOR hurricane bearing down on us with as they are forcasting 1 to 3 FT of Rain and 35-60 mph winds due to start Friday morning .. so If you want this I need to ship today as we may not have electricity and dealing with major flooding in the entire area for days ...

    Well all the translucent copper is sold. Will restock as soon as all the flooding has subsided
    We did fairly well (so far) getting thru the storm
    Flooding all around us . literally every road around us is flooded in the low areas. We are cut off in all directions and power has been out since 10:47 this morning. Running generator every 3-4 hrs for an hour to keep freezers /fridge cold and catch up on news.
    Have plenty of MREs and other food bottled water and if pushed can hook another generator to the well. So we are all good

    Smoke, it is good to hear you are doing ok.
    Could you put me on the waiting list (if there is one) for the translucent copper? I've been looking for something like that for awhile.
    Thank you
