    30 seconds is also the time I swirl mine. A couple of hard up and down shakes and I'm done

    The relative humidity in the area where P/Cing takes place makes a world of difference in PC adherence, especially if you use air soft bbs. Now that warmer weather has arrived, the dehumidifier in our basement keeps the humidity at bay, at @ 40%. I use an emptied #2 2 lb gun powder cannister (label peeled off) that has a screw-on lid. Put a bit of new PC (Smokes clear) in on top of what remained from the last PCing session & shake it around a bit, roll it on the bare basement floor & it is done. I can do a couple hundred at a time of 9mm, 38 Spl/357 Mag, 40 S&W, 41 Mag, 45 Colt/ACP boolits in short order. Dump contents into a colander that has a matching bowl underneath, pick up the PCd boolits with dental tweezers, knock off the excess PC against the side of the colander & set the boolits on parchment paper in a tray from Bed Bath & Beyond & place loaded tray in pre-heated convection oven for @ 30 minutes at @ 450 degrees. Job is done. Coverage is really good. Hammered PCd boolits until they're the size of a 50 cent piece show complete adherence of PC. Works for me. Big Boomer

    my 2¢:

    I made a couple of trays out of ¼" hardware cloth--they sit on a cookie baking sheet.

    After I dump my PC, BBs, and bullets into a colander to separate the bullets from the rest I just pour the bullets onto the trays in a single layer

    after baking I dump them in a baking pan, see below, to cool. Give them shake to keep the bullets from sticking together. It sure cuts down on time getting them ready for the oven
