Here is the process I used for the HBN coating of the bullets in the version 5 guide:

Step 1: Wash the bullets (about 250 6mm bullets) in acetone.


Step 2: Place the bullets and impact media (1.5 lbs #B steel shot) in metal pan.


Step 3: Heat the bullets and impact media @ 240°F for 20 min.


Step 4: Plate the bullets for 2 hours (1 hour 15 min. for Sierra Blitz), adding approximately 250mg 7 micron HBN directly to the tumbler.


Step 5: Remove the bullets from the media.


Step 6: Give the bullets a quick polish with a towel or old T-shirt. You can also place the bullets back in the tumbler with old newspaper or cloth strips for a real shine. Personally, I don't think the prairie dogs can tell how shiny the bullets are.
