This looks very interesting indeed. Just wish they sold the whole cartridges. But I may buy a box or two for my favorite re loaders.  :) I don't ever wait for Christmas...

Hi-Tek Supercoat Hard Cast Lead Bullets

Based out of Grafton, North Dakota, we here at Prairie Fire Arms, Inc. specialize in hard cast lead bullet casting and are dedicated to our customerís satisfaction. Our number one priority is to provide you with a top quality bullet using 92:6:2 lead alloy with a Brinell hardness of 16. We manufacture smokeless Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets for everyone from the USPSA/IPSC shooter, right down to the everyday recreational plinker. The standard hard cast lead projectile with a wax based lubricant has finally met itís match! These slick sided bullets are coated with a liquid based coating and then baked in an industrial oven. Hi-Tek Supercoat is tough as nails, sticking to hard cast lead bullets even after it is shot through a rifled barrel! Hi-Tek acts as your lubricant, but doesnít smoke like the traditional waxed lube grooved bullets do. The best part? No more cleaning lead particles out of your barrel or wax out of your reloader! Hi-Tek Supercoat eliminates the problem of lead fouling as it wonít strip off the bullet, protecting your barrel from ever having to come in contact with lead. The cleanest bullets on the market, our smoke free Hi-Tek Supercoat bullets will have you shooting more and cleaning less!

Sounds similar to my powder-coated bullets.  Shake on the powder and bake at 400 degrees.  I'm unable to scratch the paint off but I don't know what they look like after leaving the barrel.  Haven't picked one out of the berm yet...

My students have been very impressed with the powder coated rounds you sent me. :) One said she'd like a nail polish that looked like that.  :laugh:

Well, if her hand could handle 400 degrees for ten minutes she would have the paint on for a loooooong time.

Heh heh... I think she likes to change the color often. She's be happy with a fake paint that LOOKED like that bullet. Me, I never saw any point in painting stuff on my fingernails, or using makeup of any kind. What you see is what you get. :)

Checked out some of the local gun stores today.
lots of powder, 1 ponders going for $25 to $35.
lots of primers on the shelves, plenty of bullets too.

not much for casting around here.

still looking at getting a Dillon rig.

I get 95% of my casting equipment online.  Very few LGS's carry such stuff.

Get the Dillon!  You won't regret it for one single nanosecond.  With the nicer weather I'm not in the reloading room as much these days but yesterday afternoon I had a few spare minutes so I cranked out a couple dozen 9mm rounds.

Stopped in an LGS yesterday to peruse the inventory.  Plenty of everything.  Most popular powders in the $23-$28 range.  Primers in the $29-$32 range.  I've been reloading for over 4 years now and other than the prices during the powder shortage a year ago the prices have stayed about the same.

I'm still hopeful that the Trump presidency will cause a glut in inventory and prices start dropping.  Then I'll really start adding bulk to my shelves!

My dad found 'once-fired' 223 brass for 10Ę a piece.  Various pistol brass was as low as 3Ę each!  These prices were listed in the Dillon Blue Press catalogue that he gets every month.  I don't remember seeing such low prices for brass since I started reloading 5ish years ago.

Hey, OutdoorLimited -- looks like you've got a good operation going there. Can you add any philosophical commenary beside just linking to your business? That would be cool.
Thanks Bro,
Salute!
