A coworker and I were having a talk with another co worker a bit less than half our ages. The conversation was about how shooting has changed over the years. This conversation covered the 1960's thru today. A part of the conversation was about defensive hand gun ammo and how for the most part until the early to mid 1980's it was pretty poor. One of the early attempts was the S&W Nyclad ammo. It was a fairly soft lead pistol bullet coated with what I assume was a plastic nylon product. It worked pretty well. The lead was soft enough to expand and the coating prevented leading all the while forgoing the expense of a bullet jacket. This got me thinking about today's HTC/Powder-coated bullets. Is there a easily applied product that is cheaper and easier to use as a coating than the spray or shake and bake coatings. Something that you could just dip and let dry yet still be cheap? The thought process my mind takes when I'm trying to be lazy.
