Powdercoating and sizing your big bore projectiles will eliminate all the leading and in most cases add 4 to 5% in velocity from reduced friction. Some history for you. First I have not been in the airgun world much but now trying to learn all I can. My emphasis will be big bore in the beginning. Got a Sam Yang(Seneca) Dragon Claw 50 here now and a Texan 457 Ss CF on the way.Also forgive me if I use some incorrect terms as agaIn I am new to the airgun world but a powderburner and reloader for over 40 years and a competitive shooter for many of those. Now on to powdercoating. I have been selling Hi Quality NEW production PC powder all over the world for over 6 years now and have literally thousands of customers who will back up what I say. Follow the proper application instructions, then proper sizing to bore and you WILL reap the benefits.Sizing is a simple as a push thru sizer from Lee Precision or a NOE molds sizing kit.
So how do you edit a post here ? I must be missing something nevermind I just found it Thanks anyway
Noshootbunnies. The 4 to 5 % figure has been proven many times in powderburners. I am just getting into airguns and as of yet not tested for velocity increases at the slower airgun speeds.I am sure there will be some increase because of reduced friction but how much I hope to determine in the somewhat near future.First testing will be a Seneca Dragon claw with a just ordered Accurate Molds 180 grn and a TC 370 gr Maxi ball. Then as soon as they will ship my Airforce Texan 457 SS CF testing will be done with various 300 to 400 grn bullet/slugsJust wast to be as up front as possible here
