wow...I don't think I have EVER had spatter.....when I say EVER I mean EVER! I'm running a 75/25, Ar/CO2 mix on a Miller 185.....the ONLY time I EVER have to "dress up" the welds is if I honestly DO NOT WANT A WELD......
the welds look good and there are even little "hot spots" so I would agree with everyone and say "check the gas".....
if you REALLY want to play, I have been told Helium (I think that was it.....it was quite a while ago) does wonders (never tried it)
Helium was used back in the day as the first shielding gas for a little welding process know as heli-arc (tig). It was replaced by argon and argon mixes. If you didnt use anti-platter or something of the like you had some splatter. Maybe it wasnt bad, but there was some.
