    How do you like the CFE223 powder? Can you tell any difference in the copper fouling?

    I’m not experienced enough in rifles to be able to comment on the copper fouling. But I do like the powder , especially because it meters like water.

    I'm sure I've asked this before, but do you powdercoat all your cast bullets? If so, why? One of these years, I hope to start casting handgun boolits.

    And those look nice!

    I'm tinkering with other methods right now,but for the most part it is my go to.
    Recently aquired a lyman 450 lube sizer,lube and have started fooling around with lubing cast lead rifle bullets.

    For me the powdercoating is just easier and cleaner. Its stable,won't chip off and stick inside your dies. You won't look like your shooting black powder when firing off your handgun. Also......its cleaner on your gun,like FMJ ammo......there will be no leading.

    One drawback to it.....Finding powders that stick well and cover evenly without having to spray them

    First powder I used was Varget, get better results with CFE223. I’ll probably try Varget again one of these days.


    Course, CFE doesn’t have that wierd smell....o_O
