Hi-Tek Heat Set Supercoat in a powdered format. Same product as the liquid version but in an easy to use powder.
Hi-Tek powder is built with the latest generation resins and has the 2-extreme catalyst built in. To use, simply measure out the appropriate amount of powder and add Acetone or M.E.K. (15 ounces of powder makes up to 71 fluid ounces (2.2 quarts) of bullet coating).
Complete instructions are included.
Simple enough and easy to use.
The trick (technique) lies in applying this coating and baking parameters.
We're in the desert (0% humidity) and at 6000 ft elevation.
So we're getting better every day. George on Nov 13th 2017
I have been using Hi -Tek over two years now. Cuts down on the smoke and I haven't had any leading. A couple of passes down the barrel with a brush and then clean it up with a patch. As you can see on the internet more and more companies are going to Hi-Tek coating. If it wasn't good they wouldn't be switching over. Donnie at Bayou Bullets is great to deal with. Always helpful and will return your calls fast. Unknown on Jul 30th 2017
I have been using this product for several years now and am still impressed with the ease of use with much less smoke than before. Danny Moore on May 25th 2017
A+ product. Easy to use. Will be buying other colors. Unknown on Apr 26th 2017
I have had great results with this product. I now have six different colors for each caliber I cast for. Hi-Tec is easy to use and is a great value. Thank You Hi-Tec. Ruben on Feb 14th 2017
Of course on the first batch I made quite a mess. I bought black so my white table is trashed. The second batch was much cleaner.
Following the instructions I managed to make some good bullet coating. They passed the tests and after sizing looked great.
I got the 15 ounce size which should last me quite a while.
Make sure you get some 1/4" or smaller metal screen for processing, some measuring containers and they weren't kidding about covering your work bench.
The plastic Hi-Tek container lid had to be broken off to open as it was stuck on tight. Luckily I had a new empty quart paint can and lid to store the powder in.
The final product is some clean good shooting bullets.
***Not sure how the lid managed to get stuck on that tightly that it had to be broken off. But I am glad you mentioned it and I will look into possible causes.***

Really like your coatings, this was my second order, won't be my last. Goes on nice and is very durable. Unknown on Jan 13th 2017
Very good yielding and economic product. It has given me very good results and there is no lead in the barrels Marcelo De Brito on Jan 12th 2017
Great material, easy to apply; once you arrive at a system, the process is quick. I'll never use anything else!

Logged on to the web site and quickly found the color I wanted, Gunmetal, and placed my order. Two days later I was coating 900 bullets. I mixed 10g of powder with 50 ml of acetone. This gave me almost the exact amount of coating for three coats; very little waste. The bullets passed the acetone wipe perfectly but the best test came yesterday at the range. I fired 75 rounds through my 300 BLK, never noticing the first bit of smoke. The barrel was throughly inspected for lead and NOT ONE BIT OF LEAD WAS FOUND!! I'm not sure you could ask for more from any lube/coating. If you're not using this stuff you don't know what you are missing. In the future FMJ will be replaced by FCB (Fully Coated Bullet), on boxes by all major manufacturers. It's just a matter of time. Capt. Dan on Dec 9th 2016
