    Powdercoated bullets are art!

    I never get tired of seeing a nice powdercoated bullet! These were done using Smoke's blue mixed in with some Metallic green from powder by the pound. I am not an artistic person, but these just make me want to take pictures!

    They look like 35 Rem or maybe a 356 Win with a LEE or RCBS bullet!

    Nice work and I 100% agree!!

    358 winchester with RCBS 35-200. Could not get them to shoot well with traditional lube(they were a bit undersized). They are doing better with powdercoat. Have them at 2075 fps with 1.75 inch group. Will be playing with seating depth and pretty sure I can get it down.

    know the feeling of looking at PC bullets

    my most fun is the mixing of colors and seeing the outcome. Never have to worry about the ones that come out ugly as they get shot

    Mind sharing your powder charge?

    I don't mind at all. It was 39.5 grains of 3031. Federal 308 brass necked up. No crimp. Seated just into the lands.
