Does anyone here powder coat their lead bullets for the 30-30 or 35 REm.
I powder coat for my 300 AAC and have powdercoated for my 35 Rem using 158 gr. swc.

Glad to see fellow shooters are PC their cast bullets.

It lowers my cost to shoot in that I can buy lead bullets for a fraction of FMJ.

The PC allows them to hit 2000 fps or more with no leading or seperation like a plated bullet.

This is a process I've got to try. A local gunsmith in Ft Valley Georgia is going to rechamber my 336 to 30-30 Ackley and this process will allow me to push the Acklyized 30-30 even faster.
