    With the Title containing "Black & Tans" my mind wondered in a different direction: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Black_and_Tans

    It's a flat base from the .300 Blackout group buy. I tumbled them in black and was not happy with the coverage after baking so I did a second coat in my newly received Bacon Grease and that is the result. The coverage is actually pretty good and really shiny. Haven't shot any yet though.
