What is Hi Tek bullet coating?
Hi-Tek Super Coat molecularly bonds to the bullet during the curing process, totally encapsulating the bullet. The coating prevents lead to bore contact and virtually eliminates lead fouling and the smoke normally associated with traditional wax type lubricants.
Do I need to lube powder coated bullets?
As you load bullets there is no lube to creep up the seating die and change the seating depth on the bullet. When you fire coated bullets there is no lube to burn so they make much less smoke. And after you have fired the round (or 500 rounds) the barrel is cleaner.
Are coated bullets any good?
Advantages of polymer coated bullets are less friction between the bullet and the bore, less smoke, less debris such as lead left in the barrel, no toxic off-gassing, contains no Moly-Disulfide to gum up your dies, works great in bullet feeders, great for indoor shooting where lead bullets are restricted, non abrasive …
What is NLG coating?
Shoot higher velocities without lead fouling. Can be shot through polygonal rifling. The 45 ACP 230 RN-NLG is a non-lube groove bullet thus has a longer driving band creating greater accuracy during the firing process.
What are bullets coated with?
There are three common bullet coatings: Molybdenum Disulfide (Moly), Tungsten Disulfide (WS2 or Danzac), and Hexagonal Boron Nitride (HBN or “White Graphite”). All three products have very low coefficients of friction, and, when applied correctly, all three will do the job.
What do they coat lead bullets with?
Traditional lead bullets are cast (left) or swaged (right). Both are lubed with a waxy lube. Another method is to coat the bullets with a non-waxy lubricating compound such as nylon, molybdenum disulfide (moly), polymer and other compound. Moly coated pistol bullets have been around for a while, so it’s not new.
What’s the purpose of powder coating bullets?
Powder Coating (PC) is simply the process of treating your cast bullets with a baked-on polymer coating. This coating acts as the bullets’ lubricant as it travels down the bore of your gun.
How fast can you push powder coated bullets?
In the . 308, consistent accuracy of 1.5 inches or so for ten shots is fairly easily attainable at velocities nearing and exceeding 2600 FPS with 165 gr. cast bullets.
What does powder coating bullets do?
Most of the smoke from shooting traditionally lubed lead bullets comes from the waxy lube. The smoke can be so bad you might think you’re shooting black powder. Coated bullets reduce or eliminate this smoke. They might not be as smokeless as copper jacketed or plated bullets, but they’re darn close.
What is the purpose of bullet coating?
Coated bullets offer several advantages for handloaders. Coatings that cover the entire bullet, including the base, reduce or eliminate the exposure to lead during handloading and airborne lead particles when shooting. It also means you no longer have to scrape out built-up wax lube from your seating and crimping dies.
Are Teflon coated bullets legal?
There is no benefit to “Teflon bullets”, they are a creation of Hollywood. The actual “Teflon bullets” were designed to reduce barrel wear from from hardened brass bullets, which in accordance with Federal Law are banned from civilian possession as they are “Armor Piercing”.
How are Hi-Tek coatings different from other coatings?
Unlike other coatings or lubricates there is an involved process with Hi-Tek coatings. There are several variables that have to be accounted for in order to get good adhesion and good results.
What are the benefits of Hihi-Tek bullet coating?
Hi-Tek Bullet Coating 1 No lead is exposed to the environment 2 Leading of the bore is dramatically reduced, as is lube smoke 3 Higher velocities can be attained with coated bullets 4 Health benefits for the reloader, as there is no touching of bare lead 5 Reduced force required to seat and crimp because the bullets are slippery
Is Tek bullet coatin G A two part epoxy?
Hi Tek Bullet Coatin g is either a two part epoxy if you purchase the powder, or a three part system if you purchase the liquid (Acetone or MEK is required for thinning). I purchased both with the intent to see which one I liked more. For this application we stuck with the liquid product.
Will the coating flake off under extreme pressure?
The coating shouldn’t flake off even under extreme pressure including when impacting a target. We can simulated this by smacking it with a hammer, or squeezing it with pliers.
