necessary. If you use a pressure pot you will have to back flush often. Gravity feed cup guns
work better for this, even though it can be a pain because you cant flip the gun upside down like a pressure pot gun, or hold it at right angle to the deck
. Also, it's cheap
, simple, and works. A 1qt pot was fine for me.You don't ever want to mix more than that any way, unless you're shooting something huge. Practice on something first.
PS: Keep swirling your pot load around so the flattening agent and griptex don't want to separate out like they do in a big pot.
