    can you coat different sized bullets together when HT coating?

    Is there any reason that I can't coat 45 200fr boolits together with 113 gr 30 cal boolits? I wouldn't bake them together because of the difference in size, I would think the larger ones might need a little longer to cure. I was wondering if the size difference would affect the coating evenness etc.

    If you are doing the shake and bake, you should be fine.

    I've coated and baked 45 and 9mm at the same time. No problem.

    If you are talking about HITEK coating, then, Yes you can.
    So long as the total weight is the same per bake.

    I do 250 9mm bullets per tray and 200 45 bullets per tray. Weight works out to be similar.
    All good.
    Hooroo.

    Yes, I was talking Hitek. Guess I shouldn't have abbreviated. I cast 2 boolit sizes Mon. and the combination is enough for a good load wt wise. Will bake separately

    The only reason I keep them separate is to not have to sort them prior to sizing when done. That said, I sometimes will end up with a last tray of the batch that is made up of the "overflow" of the single-caliber trays. I think that produces better results than trying to stuff the extras onto an already full tray.
