Powder coated bullets

Recommended Posts

New guy question... are powder coated lead bullets approved for shooting CAS?

 

I do have Alox but prefer to powder coat my cast bullets. 

 

Thanks J.R.

REVOLVER AND RIFLE AMMUNITION

- May not be jacketed, semi-jacketed, plated, or gas checked.  It must be all lead.  

Moly-Disulfide, polymer coated bullets, or equivalents are acceptable.

J.R. - If I may be so bold to jump in.  Here is a link to molly coating http://www.mssblog.com/2018/10/19/reloaders-corner-what-happened-to-moly-coated-bullets/  As you'll read it's an older process that never really caught on.  Polymer coating is more common today, it's a baked on finish that comes in different colors, with red being very common.  Here are 2 sites that sell coated bullets  https://bulletsbyscarlett.com  and  http://www.bayoubullets.net  

 

I hope this answers your question.  I personally prefer the coated bullets, I find them much cleaner than the lead bullets that I was using.

Thanks tequila chase.

I have been powder coating bullets for a while and most likely the way I will go. I'm already set up for it.

Does that now mean copper-washed is OK, since that wording was removed?

If so-Does that include shotgun shot?

YES.

NO...the reference is to revolver & rifle ammunition

Powder coating is another one of the hobbies I've picked up since starting CAS

 

enjoy it as a stand-alone activity and do get a kick out of the various colors that you can get by mixing powders

Moe,

Don't  be surprised if you can't  get the black powder to stick.I've tried several methods of applying it and still don't get very good results.The red works great.
