NOE .227-80sp,Hornady gas check, 4 coats Hi-Tek, sized .225, 100 ready to load. Nosee
Those are some fine looking bullets. What color is that, please.
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.
Coating makes bullets fatter. So I hope they chamber so bullet will not be pushed back into case. Have you checked?
What rifle and twist rate are you using?
i don't "follow" threads about coated bullets very much. so, the question that i have is; do the prove to be as accurate as conventially lubed bullets??
Yes, I have shot lot of these through this Tikka .223 1in8, sized .225. I fact I shoot these at the CBA national in sept. took last place, but I,am going back,can,t do any worse! I have coated some that would not chamber, put the coating on to heavy at one time, need just a little,3 or 4 times.It is time consuming but it stoped the leading in the Tikka, Thank You for asking Nosee
I started using this because of leading in a new Tikka .223 1 in 8, all the lubes i tried,and that was several , still leading after 15--20 rounds. this stopped that,I believe it to be as good or better with an accurate shooter,that i,am not. Thank You. Nosee
Thank you for asking about how accurate coated bullets are to regular lube.I did,t know, so I loaded 25 coated and 25 Lee alox.Wind here was bad today, but I was ready to shoot,sw wind 13 gust to 27, we shoot north. That didn,t matter I was just shooting to compare, coating to lube.I shot 5 coated to foul clean rifle,all 5 shot groups. Then I shot all the alox bullets,to check for lead, because that is what my real trouble was. No real good groups,all about the same 1 to 1.5 in.best was one of alox .930.But realy, to me not enough difference to say for sure,am loading somemore to try when weather is better. I will shoot the same and cono. One thing for sure I had NO leading in barrel this time,my alox groups never spreed out like before. Thank you Nosee
great post .... and congrats on shooting under 3 inches in a 25 mph wind !! .... a head or tail wind is the trickiest wind to figure out !! ...
and additionally ... a question i have:: how the he** do you get to the kc nat's range ?? on the google map it looks like you really need a hell-icopter ... if i was at the chief's stadium on I70 what roads do i take ?? or do i just drive to booneville and back for hours ?? ... since i got my eyes tuned up i gotta show up one of these times .
I put the address in my gps,it worked. Pioneer Gun Club---NW 1571st.road---Holden, MO. It drawed a map. Thanks--Nosee
