My powder coat bullet adventure

Here are the fruits of my recent labor

I just threw these on brass for giggles. I just wrapped up for the evening but wanted something to show. They haven't been sized yet let alone seated properly.

Nice :) I shoot coated bullets in 9mm. Would love to see someone start mass producing .223 that could survive the trip out of a AR's barrel.

I've been using ACME and Eggelston Muntions 124/125 gr coated bullets for a while now and really like them. I don't have the drive to powder coat my own cast bullets though. I'll pay for those guys to do them.

I just found Eggelston myself. I'll have to have a closer look at that.

Their online order system is currently locked down because they've had so many orders they want to catch up before accepting more orders. I'm down to my last 200 or so projectiles so I may have to order from ACME, I was really looking forward to ordering up some of the zombie green projectiles :vmad:

Finally got my boolit sizing die from Amazon. 224 is what I got to bring those powder coated little pills down to the size I need. The PC gets a little shinier but didn't show lead anywhere.

Well, that's not EXACTLY true. I had one red one fall into the spot that de-primed primers sometimes fall. Right into the working part of the handle / shaft assembly. Normally, a spent primer in there just is inconvenient - I give it a bit more muscle and the thing gets crushed and falls out once it's small enough to pass through the gaps. The boolit fought much harder. Once it fell through, I found I had mashed it down to half its original thickness along the whole bullet. THAT one was showing lead quite a bit. lol

But i got all of them sized pretty quick. Debating using the Gas Check Maker I got recently to compare checked vs just PC'd for accuracy.
