Well, at long last BDS and myself have decided to give it the 'ole THR try with powdercoating. The tools are arriving ( most are here, parts for sizing still trickling in ) and the try in earnest should begin very soon. We have a few choice bullets to try : 158gr GCLSWC in .358 (we'll be omitting the GC ) - designed for machine lube 175gr SWC in .401 - tumble lube 175g TC - machine lube 200g LSWC in .452 - tumble lube 230 LRN in .452 - machine lube 240g LSWC in .430 - tumble lube 240g LSWC and HP in .430 - machine lube 110, 150, and 230gr in .309 - GC, flat base, and BT respectively. Designed for machine lube except the 230- its a TL design. We'll be using lee push-through sizers of the appropriate diameter. We'll be PC'ing, and then sizing. We'll be using straight WW alloy for all bullets. And lastly, I will be using the #5 polypropylene container and .25 black airsoft BB method, using a toaster oven repurposed from my kitchen, and reynolds non-stick aluminum foil. I'll begin with harbor freight red coating- as it's known to be a successful agent. After initial testing using the materials and methods listed above, we'll be branching out into different methods to test their effectiveness in achieving positive results. This is where all the results will be posted. I'll try and get as many pictures of the process as I can, as well as some video. Stay tuned. This project would not be possible without BDS- both for his research, and a generous donation of new moulds and sizers for the project. Without his research and contributions, this project would not be being undertaken. As much of the alloy after shooting and testing that can be recovered will be, and will be recast, recoated and distributed for final testing to those who have chosen to PIF to those in need in the PIF thread. That effort and alloy will be my side of the donation to make this project a success, and its final evaluation for meeting that threshold will be in the capable hands of THR's most generous members. There are approximately 40 pounds +/- of alloy at the beginning, so there will not be millions of bullets to distribute- but everything in the testing save a small amount for personal use for myself and BDS will be redistributed, as final evaluation of the project will only then be completed. Have a great weekend, folks !
