ok guys, here I go.. I'm new to lead cast bullets.. after reading too many blogs, and watching too many you-tube vids, I've decided to try my hand at "copper plating" my lead cast bullets :thumbup: what I'm trying to achieve is a .30 cal bullet that I can push to a med. to upper end fps for 170gr. bullet for 300win mag, 30-06, 30-30, 308.. I have tin, pure lead, lino-type, wheel weights, and lead ingots that vary BIN of 18-28, total of 175lbs.I like to keep me BIN in the neighborhood of 20+/- . my intent is a bullet for big game. I also cast 9mm,10/40,357/38, 45lc,45acp, 44mag. So... if some of you "casters" can give me some advice, I would be grateful. Some times I just over think things. oh ya, youtube "copper plating bullets "I'm using ZEP rootkill and vinegar. 2amp battery charger. Thanks to all in advance!
