We have officially become a coated bullet manufacturer! Our coating is Hi-Tek Supercoat, the best coating out there in our experience. A lot of people are unfamiliar with coated bullets. They have been in the USA for a few years, but are just now starting to become mainstream.
Here is a little information about our products, first from The Blue Press! See Page 36 at the following link.
*These are a POLYMER coated bullet. Not to be confused with copper wash, there is no copper/brass/metal in our coating.
*All of our bullets are from certified 92/6/2 alloy with a Brinell hardness of 16-17.
Why shoot coated bullets instead of bare lead bullets?
*There is no risk of losing lube/damaging bullets during shipping.
*There is no more wax lube to get into your reloading dies.
*There is significantly less smoke than standard cast bullets.
*Lead fouling is drastically minimized with this advanced coating material.
*Shoot higher velocities without lead fouling. We recommend 1,500fps or less(1,750fps in rifles)
*The end result is a cleaner reloading and shooting experience. Your hands, guns/barrels and loaders will all be cleaner and easier to maintain.
*Load the coated bullets the same way you would a lead bullet, with lead data.
*Be sure that you have enough flare on the case mouth when seating the bullet or the coating may be scraped off, causing performance issues.
*Also be sure you are not over-crimping as this will cause accuracy and leading issues.
*These bullets ARE legal for use in SASS since the coating is NOT COPPER it is a POLYMER COAT. One great reason to consider using them for cowboy action shooting is that a number of people have noticed less lead splatter with our coated bullets than with traditional bare lead bullets. An added bonus!
