If you are not familiar with Hi-Tek coating, you will want to be. The coating is a polymer that lubricates the bullets so wax is not needed. Thus, there is a lot less smoke and suit. Additionally, the coating protects you from direct contact with lead. The coating is allowed for shooting steel targets (having no copper jacket), reduces how much lead gets on your fingers and protects the barrel from leading.
