    Im following the instructions from HyTec powder coatings. The powder is from Prismatic powder. I knew that some powders won't cost well but i tried them to see if theirs would. It was just a trial. I wanted to use theirs because they have a huge selection of colors.

    A recent batch. I had run a batch of blue and decided to add what little red I had left. Came out with a funky purplish color.

    I have a collection of lead with lube. Is removing the lube required. Am I past the point of no return such that I should just shoot them? tx

    Naw. If libeled is what you like, rock it out. If you plan on pcíing, Iíd suggest recasting them to make sure all the lube is removed. Itís just my limited opinion though.

    Yes you'll need to remove the lube. Because you cook the bullets at 400 degrees. It'll make a big mess if you don't and the powdercoat won't stick where the lube was.

    Removing lube is easy. Just put bullets in boiling water for about 15Min, all the lube will float, bullets not so much.
