    I believe the keys to getting best results with the shake and bake method is to pour the coated boolits from your #5 container into a fine mesh strainer like a vegetable strainer, and shake off the excess powder. Then pour them from the strainer onto a 1/4" screen or hardware cloth and make sure they are not clumped together, before putting them into the oven on the screen cloth supported by the oven tray. Then bake from room temp to 400 degrees for 1 hour and let cool in the oven. When cool, simply dump from the screen cloth coverd tray into a large bucket and the boolits that happened to touch each other will be free and fully coated. There maybe minute spots where the boolits touched each other, but the parts of the boolits that touched the screen cloth seem to be magically covered all the way around. At least this is what I've found with Smokes traffic purple and 25 cal boolits.
    It's all chicken, even the beak!

    I use a plastic forceps and tap off the excess and stand them in a cake pan. There is minor sticking but snap off easily. I don't mind the 5 or 10 minutes. They come out great. Havent done any in a few years.
