Very interesting and it is pretty neat. Forgive my lack of knowledge on this subject, maybe you could explain why you would copper plate the bullets. I do know that you can't or really shouldn't shoot lead thru a gun with polygonal riffling, as it can cause damage to the barrel. And the manufacturers will not honor a warranty if you shoot lead in one, kahr and glock to name 2.

Plating is like almost putting a jacket on . Plating stops most all the lead fouling, eliminates the need for nasty sticky, smokey bullet lube. And you can push platted bullets almost as fast as jacketed.

Ps I think gold dots are plated, most encapsulated fmjs are plated.

Ok ....that makes sense. It would seem unlikely though that the coating being so thin can do that. But I guess when you consider the short distance and speed it travels thru the barrel it becomes a non issue.

Yeah I think a progressive press would be nice. But I'm not shooting hundreds of rounds at a time anymore.

It might be a little anal, but I like inspecting the cases at every step. Making sure there's nothing to break the decapping pin, the flash hole is open and ready, and there's powder in it before I seat the bullet. Then I inspect the finished round.
