2: The bullets I’m doing today are from a favorite Lyman 454424 bullet mold and I’m doing about 100 bullets for this demonstration. Sprinkle about ½ teaspoon of PC on your bullets and snap your lid on. Now you shake, rotate or swirl your bullets for about 30 seconds.

I’m using a clear PC I ordered from “Smoke” on the CastBoolits.gunloads.com forum. I believe its Eastwood PC, but am not sure. He sells it by the pound for around $12, but it’s worth it. I also use Harbor Freight with good results, but it just takes a little more effort to shake and coat the bullets.

Once your bullets are coated like the picture, dump them in a coarse screen strainer, or some tightly woven chicken wire, and shake off the excess powder. This is a key step to keep your bullets from becoming a “melted blob” of bullets. The excess PC melts, making a terrible mess.
