Red Crayon ?

Post by george457d on Wed Jun 20, 2012 4:08 am

222 and 223 are very smiler , so I use nickle plated brass on the 222 ... The 45-70 with the FTX Leavereviloution is 10/1000 shorter , and I load this also in nickle ... I have recently put the parts together for a 460 Rowland ,using a "Springfield-Armory" 1911 lower and a "Meck-Teck" upper ... Starline makes the brass , but not in nickle ... The brass is about 1/16th of an inch longer than a 45 auto , and a lot thicker ... If I scribble Red Crayon on the headstamp will it do any thing bad to the firing-pin or ejector feedack

I Don't know that I would use Red Crayon but I have used a red green black etc sharpie pen with no problems. Red Crayon is basically wax and it will build up in your gun possibly could cause high pressures. I doubt that it would but could. it definitely will gum up your bolt face as I suspect is what your worried about. Maybe not enough to matter between cleanings.

I agree with Reloads logic. I use a blue sharpie when I resize 270 brass into 7x57.

I have used different colored sharpies on shell bases as well as various model paints dabbing color on the bullet tips.

A drop of Testor's plastic model paint in a hollow point bullet makes a pretty decent market for different bullets and/or loads.
