Re: Bullet coatings..Danzac, etc.

Texas...I coat my own bullets with Danzac, it helps the throat last longer, and does not shingle at the molecular level like moly.

For someone trying to make one shot kills, moly is the curse from hell. If your barrel is clean, it may take from 4 to 14 shots to get your barrel to settle down, and it never seems to be repeatable as to the number before it does settle down.

Now before someone jumps in and says their gun shoots great with the first shot and moly bullets, more power to ya! We have tested this in a very controlled way in a 100 yd. tunnel with guns accurate enough to shoot back to back 5 shot groups in the .080" range. Danzac coated bullets always settled to the zero on the 2cnd shot.

I use the same cleaning procedure for coated and uncoated bullets.

1) 2 wet patches of powder solvent

2) 20 strokes with a bronze brush wet with powder solvent.

3) Alternate wet dry patches until powder residue is gone.

4) 2 Dry patches.

5) Sweet's copper solvent on a patch

Decision time: Lots of copper fouling, then go to JB bore paste.
Little copper, one more patch of Sweet's

6) Dry the bore, and two wet patches of Synthetic oil

7) Degrease the chamber carefully with gun scrubber or quick scrub III. (CAUTION: NEVER LEAVE OIL OR SOLVENT IN THE CHAMBER AREA, THE CHAMBER MUST BE CLEAN AND DRY BEFORE YOU SHOOT.)

8) clean bolt and hit lugs and cam area with grease.

Where do you get information on Danzac? Do they have a website?

Suppliers like OSRAM sell metallic powders in many grades.

I'm told, the brand name tungsten disulfide "Danzac" is no longer being made. I do have a contact for other TD coatings, not sure who makes the other coatings but I could find out.
