Powder coated bullets anyone?

With copper plated bullets finished ammo being so plentiful and inexpensive in the recent past, I had not loaded lead/wax lubed bullets in many years. Shooting Tanfos also mandated buying instead of making most ammo.

 

But, due to the shortage of ammo and components nowadays I stumbled on a site that had a section on powder coating bullets. I had many thousands of already cast 9mm and .45 bullets and read up on the process and plated almost everything in my garage.  Add to that I have literally nearly a ton of quality ingot lead ready, I bought some 6 cavity .40 molds. 

 

Has anyone else plated their cast bullets?

Yes, I used to powder coat my bullets.

It works great and is MUCH nicer than lubricating/sizing.  

I don't powdercoat anymore though, I now use a product called HiTech Bullet Coatings.  It is a wet process that is similar to tumble powder coating, but the Hitech coating applies a little easier and works better in high power applications (rifle speeds).
