Casting - Bullet Lubes: Powdercoating bullets the easy way. Comparison of powder coating using 3 different methods

In General

Powder coating bullets via Powder Coat System (Harbor Freight), Vibration Method (Lyman Turbo), and a small rock tumbler (HF small one). I did it on an extremely humid day (during a downpour at times) but my trials always seem to indicate the rock tumbler method worked best. I used HF inexpensive Red Powder coating (they say to avoid the black colored powder because of its abrasiveness). It's best to use enough lead in your batches to get the bullets peening against one another (tamps the powder into the pores of the lead).
