Okay. So I,m starting to get the hang of powder coating - more or less. What about gas checks. I have read different and opposing views on the subject. Some say it is not necessary or needed, others say because the bullet is designed for checks they should be applied prior to coating, some say after coating (which I have tried with dismal results - however, that was after two coats with the HF powder). I even read where that if you leave the check off, the cut for the check will act as small boat tail increasing the BC of the bullet slightly..
Anybody do any actual testing with and without checks? For accuracy? Bullet drop? Opinions?
