    What color shoots best?

    I’m still using my Lyman and Star lubrasizers.

    I’m tempted to try the powder coating, but my bullets ain’t broke. Some of the powder coating colors do look neat though. Kinda makes me feel like getting distracted by a shiny car or a pretty woman. New, shiny, and pretty. But, still burns gasoline, tires, and credit cards.

    That chrome looks very nice.

    Where do you get it, how are you applying it and how does it shoot?

    They are TGIC Polyester, they should shoot just fine, I have too many projects going. https://www.eastwood.com/eastwood-extreme-chrome-bonded-powder.html

    Eastwood Extreme Chrome Bonded Powder
    Item #15999 Extreme Chrome Bonded Powder

    SPECIFICATIONS
    Color: Chrome
    Gloss Level: Gloss
    Cure Temperature: 400 Degrees
    Cure Time: 20 Minutes after flowout
    Powder Type: High-Tech, Bonded Polyester-TGIC
    Finish: Smooth
    Coverage: 1/2 lb. of powder is approximately 10-20 sq. ft.

    They recommend a clear coat for long-term durability, I think it makes the chrome duller.

    I used the ASBBDT (Air Soft BB Dry Tumble method)

    cover the bottom of a #5 container with ASBB’s, toss in 1 tsp powder and a handful of bullets.

    close lid and swirl for 15 – 30 seconds. Dump into a colander with holes large enough for the BB’s to fall through and shake off all the excess powder. Chrome is a little more finicky so I grab the pc’d bullets with a tweezer, make sure all excess powder is of by tapping tweezer on side of bowl then stand up in baking basket, Normally I just dump the bullets into the baking basket and go 12 min@ 400° in a preheated oven
