Always used blue magnalube. Switched to powdercoat and the cloud is gone.

I don't see it as any extra work. I can powder coat 100 bullets at a time and it only takes about 60 seconds with a powder coat gun to put down the powder. While that batch is in the oven, I'm coating the next 100.

It goes quick. No lube, no mess, no smoke.

Ah, children. When I check my bore after firing non-PC'd bullets, there's "Not a hint of leading or red paint in the bore" as well. A properly sized and lubed bullet does that for ya.

And no lead or lube on your fingers or dies...multiply that by handling thousands of rounds, well...you get it..
I will be objective about this and see if the process works for me. I do see many guys switching over to PC though.

Kind of reminds of the Moly days gone buy. I personally don't shoot that many lead bullets but when I do they come lubed. Interesting though...
