    I'm jumping in

    I have an oven,thermometer,Smokes paint, parchment, black airsoft BB's and a timer. I tried my first small batch, reject .38 wadcutters in Carolina Blue. Shake and bake worked easier than I had been worrying about. The boolits came out nice. I have not loaded or shot yet. I like it so far. My question is, Do I need a different container to shake each color (more cool whip more fruit cobbler)?

    I use several containers for all powders. Use an air hose to blow them out or some guys leave the powder in them. Some wipe them out. Whichever way do it outside!
    Boolits !!!!! Does that mean what I think it do? It do!

    you can just wipe the container out and for bb's you could pour them on a towel to clean them or something like that. tiny residual mixing shouldn't be noticed if you clean decently well. if you have enough bb's for 2 containers and you have 2 colors then might as well set up separate containers per color

    You really don't have to use a #5 container as most plastic will generate enough of a charge if the humidity is not too high.

    I wash my bowl...wash my BBs....then reuse both with a different color. Just make sure its bone dry when you start your next batch. If you have any dampness....you won't get a static generated.

    Since I only PC now, I have a Rubbermaid container (heavy duty one's) with BB's for each color. All I ever do is add more powder.

    I know you meant "bowls", but reading it with "bowels" sure does make it seem like PC is not fun.

    I did, it just added a certain something.

    I assumed that spellcheck might have got you. I wasn't intending to be a spelling/diction nazi, I just found it funny.
