      So far I have tried 8 of the colors from Smoke. I have also tried a few combinations of colors just to see what they would look like.

      From left to right: black, clear, John Deere green, Carolina blue, traffic purple, flame red, traffic orange, and orange brown.

      Combinations colors. From left to right: Carolina blue and clear, red and black, orange and red, purple and black.

      I cant decide which color I like best. I might have to order some more colors and try them. Which one do you like best?

      For me….. Favorite is yellow/green. Easiest to coat is orange/brown. Colors I use most the most are signal blue, and pink. (most requested and coat very well too).

      Interesting, my Carolina Blue looks to be quite a different shade of blue.

      With all those colors, you can use them to identify your loads:
      Orange for Unique,
      Blue for Blue Dot,
      Purple for ACWW,
      Green for WQWW, etc.

      You can make up your own codes….

      Enjoy.

      Right now I’m just a one bullet/alloy/load kind of guy. I just can’t pick one color I like best.

      Waksupi is your Carolina blue a lighter blue? Mine comes out too dark to be Carolina blue.

      You might consider which color looks best with your cases, (brass or nickel) and which color goes best with the finish of your firearm(s)…..

      Maybe I should pick a color that will go with my nail polish…

      Sounds like you may have gotten signal blue instead of Carolina blue.

      or you are using a brass tumbler .. we have seen several cases where
      the tumblers were causing lead dust and darkening the powder color

      Well, I ordered Signal Blue, I had to check our original communication on it. My mistake. Regardless, I like the color, and am happy with it. I tumble in a #5 tuper ware.
