Why is there a different time for the Sierra BlitzKing??

Sierra and Berger jackets tend to get a nice even coat faster than Nosler or Hornady jackets (in my setup). You also need to really watch the tumbler when you are coating lead tip bullets. If they are getting deformed you either need to stop or add more mass to the tumbler. I should also specify that this is the 80gr. Sierra Blitz (a lead tipped bullet) and not one of the BlitzKings. I have not tried coating any of the BlitzKings....yet.
