I ran 95 rounds thru my Super Blackhawk Hunter today.

All were 429421 coated with Eastwood mirror red.

Three loads:

   7 gr HP38

   10 gr Unique

   23 gr 296

Best accuracy was the Unique load, with 296 a close second.

When I cleaned the gun this evening, there was no leading.

That coating stuff really is pretty neat. I've taken to standing my bullets up and get a really good coat.

I've been up to the pulpit preaching the advantages of powder coating for several years now. Glad to see a few converts. Especially for handgun rounds it's a hard process to beat. Gp

Hello,

I'm in the process of putting some pictures of targets that I shot, with my .17 Cal. Mashburn rifle, with gc'd powder coated bullets. They will knock your socks off. They would already be posted except for the last three weeks I've been driving, all over the country watching my Grand daughter play softball, about 4 days a week, and this week is going to be even more busy.

David: 

The grand daughter is way more important. My first is due in August. Let the guns sit in the corner and rust.

I used to get 1 1/2" groups in my SBH with that same bullets over 9.5grs of Unique. 

It'll be a treat to try PC, but low on my Laundry list of Guns and PC'd bullets. Got at least 1,000 #429421 already to go; sized and lubed.

Long time Caster/Reloader, Getting back into it after almost 10yrs. Life Member NRA 40+yrs, Life S.A.S.S. #375. Does this mean a description of me as a fumble-fingered knuckle-draggin' baboon. I also drool in my sleep. I firmly believe that true happiness is a warm gun. Did I mention how much I HATE auto-correct on this blasted tablet.
