Yeah, it got pretty hot. I was shooting these pretty fast.

There was no buildup anywhere, the photos shown above were of my barrel right after I shot about 110 rounds through it in a matter of 15 minutes or so.

Basically just powder residue. Clean as a whistle with just one pass of a bore snake. It was easier than cleaning the barrel even when shooting jacketed ammo.

A bit of advice: Be careful about using one of those to shoot someone. They might well get an infection from that powder coating stuff and that might well cause them to suffer harm, or even death.
Yeah, I use Hornady XTP's for any bad guy work

A good idea? Maybe. Proceed with caution.

It doesn't take a whole lot of change to cause significant changes in internal ballistics and chamber pressures. You should be careful using these with anything approaching a max load. Have these been tested in a test barrel or proof barrel?

These bullets are sized AFTER they are powder coated, so they are the same size as the regular cast bullets. Being that the coating is more slippery than normal lead, ammo loaded with this coated bullet produces LESS pressure than regular lubed cast bullets.

People have been able to use higher powder charges and are seeing much higher velocities with less pressure signs than with the regular cast bullets.

So, there really is nothing to worry about. You should develop your loads starting at least 10% under maximum and work your way up with these coated bullets just like you do with every other bullet. Prudent loading procedures still apply, these aren't magic and should be treated like every other load development.

I would like you to post up some photos of the primers on spent rounds loaded near max pressure according to published load data having shot these powder coated slugs.
So this is just standard commercially available powder coating used on anything by anyone?

Did you try looking around via the link he provided in the OP?

I just got a new mold in for my 9mm. It is an NOE 135gr mold that molds either 128 gr hollow points or 135 gr round flat nose, depending on the inserts.

Anyway, since I am casting hollow points I could make a jig to coat the whole bullet.

Works great and the whole bullet is coated. I can do 77 at a time with this jig and my small toaster oven.

He's out of the 4 bullet mold right now, but here is a link to the 2 bullet version:

http://noebulletmolds.com/NV/product...roducts_id=345

The 4 bullet hollow point mold sells for $130.00. It is TOTALY worth it though. It cast some NICE bullets.

That's an evil link for a mold junky.

Especially one that rides a KLR.
