A friend has got herself 1 of those pink Charter Arms revolvers and to go with the pink grips and case, she wants pink bullets. She wants them to put in cartridge loops for show at shoots or display in the case. Is there a way to make pink bullets?! We could'nt keep shooting fashion to shirts and pants, Heaven help us!!!

Try pink magic marker.   When I was shooting indoor pistol we would color code our centerfire brass with the magic marker.

Cast the bullets out of pink tinted wax & load them with inert primers & no powder.

Finger nail polish. BTW, finger nail polish comes in different shades of pink. BTW - would she also manicure the bullets. (lol)

This is completely off topic here, but when I first saw the Title of this thread --- Colored Bullets --- it reminded me of a match held at the Pioneer Gun Club in Kansas City a couple of years ago.

Larry Rickertsen was shooting an 03-A3 in an Issue Military Match and had used a red marker on each cast bullet to orientate each bullet in the chamber. There was light rain that morning and the targets were wet.

When we would go down to change out the targets after a string, by far the majority of the holes would show a red streak on the wet target indexed at say the 5 o'clock position.

I am not trying to say that they all indexed in that position, but way more then could be expected from any random distribution  --- amazing considering the hundreds of revolutions those bullets made before going thru the target at 100 yards.

When I first saw the title I thought it was some kind of time warp KKK thing. I was very glad to see I was wrong. Probably should've kept that to myself.

Can lead be anodized like aluminum? If so, this could be a good way to go...

This is off topic too. My grand daughter got her first gun a couple years ago, a pink chipmunk. My disowned son bought it! And another lady I knew that we field trialed with showed up one time with a bright pink saddle balnket and a pink head stall and reins. It's a girl thing!

Try to tint the LLA, using your favorite pink crayon. It is common to use a crayon to color tint the lube for many home brewers. Lube factor may be diminished but crayons are synthetic now (IIRC) and so burning the crayon and effects that the burn may have would be mitigated.

Pink crayons, liquify it in MEK or Acetone, preferably MEK due to it's volatility. Once fluidized at least to paste, add to Paint Thinner in generous amounts. Thats little PT, lots of crayon paste. Add sufficient PT to make a “fluid” at least as thin as LLA. Then add to the LLA. The MEK should flash off very fast but allowing the PT oil base to keep the crayon in suspension. The LLA should carry and bond the crayon to bullet. Use quickly as the crayon will likely want to go solid quickly

Thats my 2 cents on pink bullets.

maybe we could dress each bullet up in something from victoria secrets. i am sure they have something small enough for a 38 special. joe gifford aka argie1891

When I was a kid, I had a .257 roberts. I used my mothers used lip sticks to mark my bullets. At 1200 fps the bullets would mark the targets just fine so I could tell which holes were mine.

I remember a magazine article about a bolt action pistol similar to Rem XP 100.   There was a photo of it dressed in a pink fibreglass stock !

Years and years ago when fighter planes were prop driven and they used a canvas target shaped like a windsock towed behind another prop-driven plane, the military used bullets coded by paint color to know who had hit and who had missed by the paint streaks, missing or present, on the fabric. I bet that made fro some great allibies: “That danged blue paint just doesn't let the slugs fly where they are pointed."

I would try scuffing the surface of the bullets to give them some “tooth", then dip the assembled rounds--bullets only--in the appropriate colored lacquer--maybe several coats.

hello, tell her to obtain some high-copper content lead alloy such as a babbit bearing material. now this stuff will be harder than blazes & probably take a high heat setting, but they will be a slight reddish color. wouldn,t want to put too many thru a pet barrel.
