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. (3.5 ounces of powder makes up to 16 fluid ounces of bullet coating).
Complete instructions are included.
I've now got almost every color of Hi-Tek. My latest two colors are the Black 1035 and the Red Copper.
I found with both of these that three very light coats ~3.5ml/5 lbs works quite well and gives awesome color. The picture of the Black 1035 here doesn't do justice to this coating. It's got a ton of gold in it. I'd almost call it antique gold. I always had problems with the Black K15 looking like crap. I mixed it according to the directions, which are not the same as the other colors, and it always comes out with a very matte finish that IMHO looks like crap. It shoots just fine but just didn't have the POP of the other colors. The Black 1035 doesn't have that problem at all.
The Red Copper is hard to describe but looks awesome.
Shipping is always prompt, product is packaged quite well and I've never had a problem with any of my shipments.
The one thing I wish ya would all sell is some 4-5 ounce HDPE bottles to hold the mix. I currently get them from Amazon but one stop shopping would be awesome.
As a side note, I was using syringes to measure the mixed product. I've switched to some 5ml plastic transfer pipettes. A lot easier to use and they're a lot cheaper. Satisfied user! on Apr 9th 2018

Tried it on some lee 230 grain 300 blackout cast bullets and worked very well. I have been shooting the Hi-tek bullets for just over a year now and have had no leading issues. I will continue to use and recommend Hi-tek to anyone and everyone interested. Jeff Reynolds on Mar 11th 2018
I bought a small 3.5 ounce jar or powder to sample the product. I followed directions about the acetone mix and cooking to double coated my 158 gr, SWC-TL made with WW for 357. The first coat was thin and spotty. The second coat covered completely and finished smooth and even. The "smash" test showed good adhesion with no flaking, chipping or peeling. After the final coat, the coating did not chip, flake or peel in the resizing die. The coating also remained intact after loading with no peeling, chipping or flaking at the case mouth. I've used Alox, generic powder coat and several wax base lubes. The Hi-Tek by far the best. The Alox and wax based lubes are just plain messy. The generic powder coat are difficult to apply consistently and usually end up being too thick, lumpy and inconsistent. It's not unusual for the generic powder coating to crack or chip in the resizing die. The Hi-Tek coating process requires 2 thin coats, but the process is simple and straight forward. The Hi-Tek coating also reduced my group size by 50%. That really surprised me. The coating was the only change I made to the load. I occasionally got barrel leading when using Alox and wax/grease. The generic powder coat did not produce any barrel leading. I'm not getting any barrel leading with Hi-Tek. While I don't like the extra step involved in the double coat process, the improvement in accuracy and nice clean barrel will keep me coming back. For me, it's just another step to the casting / reloading process to get premium quality ammo.
My first batch was 200 bullets for my 357. If my math is correct, the 3.5 ounce jar I purchased will coat about 5000 of my 357 bullets. That means the Hi-Tek coating increases my per bullet cost by $0.0034. That's 3 coated bullets for one penny. The Hi-Tek product seems to be an economical solution and I included shipping in the cost.
I recommend Hi-Tek bullet coating and will order more when this jar is gone. clv7 on Mar 4th 2018
Estoy usando el recubrimiento HI Tek desde hace, aproximadamente, nueves meses. los resultados obtenidos son excelentes. Cuando muestro las puntas pintadas a mis colegas de Tiro, preguntan dónde las compro.
Recargo en .380 - 9 - 38 SP - 357 MGN - .40 SW y 45 acp. y en todos los casos la performance de los disparos es muy buena.
Y los cañones se encuentran limpios, sin las suciedades y emplomamientos habituales de las puntas fundidas.

I currently have 9 colors of Hi-Tek. If you can follow directions and do basic measuring you'll have no problems.
I weigh my bullets so I know how my coating to apply. If I'm doing 2.5 kg of bullets I'll use 4 ml of coating for the first coat and 6 ml for the second. I've found this gives me a better coat.
I mix up the solution 50 ml at a time and use a syringe to measure the coating solution.
I've found 10 minutes at 400° does the trick.
Happy customer on Feb 2nd 2018

Very good stuff Unknown on Nov 19th 2017
The learning curve for using this product is short and not too steep. Basically, if you can mix up koolaid and come up with a drinkable result you can successfully use this product. Just follow the included directions and follow the advice given. A little of this stuff really does go a long way. The tip I would add is find an acetone resistant plastic container (most will leak a bit around the threads of the cap and it will get messy) that is large enough that it is only about 1/4 full when you have a bit over 100 ml of acetone plus the 20g of powder. Put a stainless steel bearing inside to help with agitation and remember to always agitate right before you squirt a little into the container with your boolits.
The best container for the mixed product I've found so far is a plastic sriracha hot sauce bottle with the green cap. You have to clean it out thoroughly with dish soap and then acetone. You'll think it was clean until you add the acetone and you end up with orange liquid in there. Just clean the bottle with the acetone until it stays clear. Steve on Aug 18th 2017
I have 3 batches of 250 bullets, (9mm and 38 spl). After watching a Youtube video, I had no problems. The coating appears to cover all of the bullet and does not come off in the hammer test. I have not yet had the opportunity to shoot them. So far, this product gets a high mark. Michael W Corwin on Jul 23rd 2017
