Powder coated some of my 30 XCB bullets the other day and though I would try a small batch with the gas checks installed  to see if the coating would stick to the copper checks and the report is it does.  Below are some of the XCB bullets I coated with various powders, the one on the left is Eastwood Copper Vein.

They all shoot great in my 30-06 with 35.0 grs. of H-4198 at least at 50 yds. in my old cheap Rem. 770.  If the group opens up another inch or so at 100 yds. which is about as far as I can shoot in my neck of the woods anyways I’m happy with that. Average MV on the chrono was 2292 fps.

5 shot group off sandbags
