I heated bullets once and tried that and let me tell you melting a glob of powder coated bullets, that all stuck together because they were hot, back down in the pot is a F'ing mess!!! My first experiments powder coating bullets was like a fish out of water flopping on the shore line. I was amazed how bad I could mess something up.

Where do you do you powder coating? I tried in the garage and failed. The basement holds 50% relative humidity except when the wood stove is running and maybe hits 40 or 42. Right now The wood stove had it at 31 in the kitchen. Air conditioning help lower it also. I get my dog towel and spread them on the kitchen island. Heat the toaster oven in the garage. Dump and mix the bullets over the towels, put down the cardboard reclaim tray and baking mesh pan, dump bullets shake and over cheap pan to the toaster over to bake. I do this while the wife went shopping, clean up and roll the towel up and walk off the patio and shake them out.
I typically powdercoat outside, as I always wind up spilling a tad bit of the stuff when sifting the excess off the bullets.

I go inside for the 'shake' part so I don't disturb my neighbors though. I didn't realize how loud it was until my wife told me she can clearly hear it from the patio to her car haha

If you lay a sheet of aluminum foil on the floor, you can shake the tray and recover the paint.
