I tried these powder coated bullets about three maybe four years ago now. Dinny sent me back some Lyman 358627’s I sent him. All powder coated red n green.
I didn’t shoot them right away but when I did I immediately noticed less smoke and near zero fouling in the barrel.
I had a ol oven and grabbed Red n Yellow powder at HF.
First batch I did MELTED!! Hahahaa. Lesson #1 learned straight away! Oven temps are not what the dial says!! Laser temp and oven temp gauges used now and they confirm temp.
I bought better powders then others and others. Today I have over a dozen colors and have mostly perfected the process.
I shoot my cast to 2000 FPS with zero lead fouling and good accuracy. I will still use a gas check if the bullet design is made for it. But all my new molds are bought plain base now. As I have such a tiny use for over 2K with a cast bullet it’s simply not needed for me.
99.8% of my cast get powder coated.
Heck last night I bought a small supply of a speciality bullet from a supplier who offers as cast and alloy choices. They arrived last night and within a couple hours where coated my own powder mix and sized .402.
I don’t see myself ever going back to lubed lead bullets.
If anyone would Like to try some, send me a size some postage and an address and I’ll gladly send ya some you can try for your self.
