      Coated up a bunch of the Lee 185 gr. RN bullets today for the Mosin and SKS rifles as well as some NOE 9 mm 124 gr. TC bullets in clear.

      And a few in Traffic Purple

      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
