    Question Missouri Bullet Company polymer coated bullets

    Has anyone here tried these? The coating is the lube. If you have, I'd like to hear the likes and dislikes. I ordered 500 today, grooveless. .45 acp . .452, 230gr., 18 brinnel hardness.

    The coating is the lube. Can push at higher velocities than regular lube bullets without leading and no smoke from the lube. Liked it enough to start powder coating instead of using lube. Go on Castboolits.com and read up on it.

    I wonder now, if these polymer coated bullets are suitable for Glock barrels?

    Keep us posted how they work out, I have considered them but always end up buying their 185 and 200 GR LSWC. When ordering from Missouri Bullets order 2000, shipping is the same as 500, four 500 rd. boxes fit in the USPS flat rate shipping box.

    Will do. I've ordered hard cast lead from these folks for longer than I can remember. I just now got around to giving these a try. If I like 'em , I'll order more, since I'll be needing .45 Colt before too long.

    They should be okay in Glock barrels. It's a coating called Hy-Tek and the 45 acp round nose-flat point 200 grainers I have are almost a rouge red, and they work great.

    I really enjoy shooting the 38 special 158 grain SWC coated, the brinell is only like 12 but it's for 38 special loads only. I think they make one for 357 magnum at a higher brinell rating. This coating is almost a yellow or mustard yellow.

    You can shoot powder coated bullets in anything you shoot lubed bullets in. I like being able to shoot softer bullets at much higher velocities than normal with out leading barrel. I'm shooting a straight sided, no lube ring, soft lead swagged bullet at 1000 fps with no leading. Totally sold on powder coating.

    At this point, I much prefer powder coated bullets especially in revolvers. They make less of a difference in autos to me. I find them much cleaner than straight lead in revolvers and either way you'll love how clean your dies stay. No more lube build up. I haven't shot any of MBC's coated bullets but have used thousands of SNS coated bullets.

    I have a couple of questions for those who use coated bullets

    1- have you found any difference in accuracy ? I ask because in my bullseye pistol (Kart NM Barrel) lead and JHP shoot the most accurate, plated bullets
    are the least accurate by far.

    2- how durable is the coating ? when seating does any of the coating come off. when I seat LSWC I don't shave any lead so I wouldn't think that would
    be a problem.

    1. No. I've never had a problem, but I've only used them in handguns. Though coated bullets tend to have slightly more velocity so that might affect accuracy. If I were to have a loss of accuracy with identical bullets (except for the coating) I'd try coming off the load to get the velocity back down to the "original".

    2. Plenty durable. If you don't have a problem with plain lead you won't with the coating.
