Had trouble with the Lee sizer leaving little rings of Cu putting on hornady GC so I used a 310 last nite, shake in PC, none fell off. baked on H.P. for an hour, used my coat hanger wire 'handles' to lift ~70 145gr off & set in pink hospital 'tub' of H2O. Worked great. Then resized in 309. Handles are a rectangle with a bent 1/2" dogleg to hold the tray.

Your HP conduction-bake is pretty unique, not sure anyone else is doing that but by golly it sure works doesn't it?

Well, your feedback and advice is really helping. Not "perfect", but here is the last batch of PC coating.

Before oven:
11735


After the oven:
11736


Close-up:
11737


Next a single coat of BLL which is always my last step :)
