Powder Coating Bullets
« on: May 10, 2020, 09:22:51 pm »
Is anyone out there powder coating their Bullets?  I am considering getting into that at least for the non BP loads.  Shooting Gas Checks in the Krag and  03 Springfield will stick with Montana Bullet works bullets rather than  go thru the drill of casting gaschecking an lubing.  So guess it will mostly be pistol rounds that I powder coat.  If I acquire a H&R Officers Trapdoor I could be tempted to run smokeless powder coated in both it and the Vaquero vs the Originial 88 TD which will only see BP in its remaining life which required BP in the Pistol as well if I am to stay with in the spirit of the muster
.

If anyone is doing bullet powder coating please advise of potential land mines

I started dabbling with it. Have not perfected it yet.

HI

My Schofield load uses 250 grain coated lead round nose.  I've shot a bunch of the Missouri Bullet ones and I have a few hundred of Scruffy Skippy's loaded up.  They look pretty much the same.

I haven't tried coated in my 1911's at this point, and have no current plans to do so.

Got the powder today, a powder buy the pound mistery box 10 lbs $20 and equal amount of shipping so essentially $4 a pound.  Half Sea Foam Green and half Nautical Blue the adventure begins after I get an oven and some hardware cloth to make a basket that fits nicely in what ever oven follows me home.  Good will or walmart decisions decisions

I don't powder coat bullets, but do powder coat for my hotrod hobby.  I found an electric oven in the Craigslist freebies.  Don't need to worry about burners.  I picked up a toaster oven from a local resale shop for about $5.  I use the toaster oven for smaller parts.  Might work for what you need.  Sarge.
