Res45 how do use the clear coat? your
blue looks like
Eastwood.


The Blue is Smokes Carolina Blue it's probably similar
to the Ford Blue Eastwoods sells.

The clear coat or Super Durable Gloss sold by Smoke over
at Cast Boolits goes on just like any other powder just
shake and bake. I think it's one of the easiest powders
to apply and get a good coating. The powder is white
when you first apply it then turns clear after about 5
minutes in the toaster oven.

I coated about 150 220 gr. 45 ACP cup point bullets
today with just 3/4 TSP of the clear gloss powder.

Here are some of my NOE 124 gr. 9 mm TC bullets that are
coated with the clear.



You can also see the clear coat on the Lee .312" 185 gr.RN bullet on the far Left.

Randy, my best buddy Andy who I cast,reload and shoot with
has a Sig and Kimber both in 45 ACP and they feed the
bullet just fine in HP, cup point or FN design as the mold
comes with all three pins. I have also shot the same
bullets in a Ruger P90 in 45 ACP as well with no issues.
