If you want to try something similar there are polymer coated bullets out there;
Seems a similar concept.  They are currently out of stock on a lot of their inventory but it would be interesting to try some.
When you are up to your neck in alligators it is hard to remember your original intention was to drain the swamp

I've run a few thousand  pc boolits through both my Coonan Classic and the .357 barrel on the AMP with zero problems.  You just have to have the case expander die set properly and the inside chamfered as you should with any plated boolit.

Thank you - yes, I was tracking the rise and fall of the front-sight against the target.

Hey Andy, NICE video.  Did you actually see any sort of sight picture?

Jerry, this particular coat came from Eastwood (and is called Silver Vein).

I've tried the Harbor Freight paints when I first got into PC'ing my .45acp bullets and could never get them to work very well, especially their black. I almost gave up on PC until I tried Eastwood (bought an 8 oz bottle via Amazon) and now I do all sorts of colors just for kicks (ladies especially love them):


The jury is still out but I'm relieved that cast bullets in the Automag are, so far, promising.

Andy whose powder coat product do you use. I've read  that Harbor Freight's works decently. I like the idea of red, white and blue boolits!

I frequently powder coat bullets. I have had very good results. Powder coating, of good quality, when applied properly, eliminates leading, at least it does for me. You can smash power coated bullets on an anvil, and the coating stays put. I have used coated bullets in rifles, as well as handguns, and have not noticed any difference in accuracy, between wax lubed and the powder coated.

I think coated bullets would be a perfect fit for the Automag. A low cost alternative for expensive jacketed bullets, and very inexpensive to get started with. You can size the bullets after coating, and the coating does not come off. I just gets burnished in the bullet. All I need is to get my Automag, to try it.

Andy, I would want know what's the reason you removed the original lubricant and powdercoted the bullets?
Thanks.
