Default Painting bullet weights

For you that have baught bulk tungsten can you bake them at a higher temp then you can lead. I don't see why not but just wanted to make sure first. I know powder coating is alot stronger if you can bake it between 350 and 400 degrees. Just wanted to see what you guys thought. Thanks

You can't hurt them in a normal oven, just make sure there is no insert in them.

FWIW I powder painted some drop shot weights once but I'll never do it again. What a pain!
