Gallahad: Moly coating on bullets seems to be a passing fad. From all the reports I have read and all theposts on these forums, moly coating may give you a small velocity increase although it didn't seem worth the effort to many of the posters, and it does collect in the barrel and is difficult to get out. A number of the folks who posted about it don't use moly coating any longer. HTH. Mikey.
I ruined the barrel on a .17 Rem. with Molly coated bullets. The Molly build-up in the barrel and I lost all accuracy. No amount of scrubbing the barrel could get it out. I did save the barrel by fire lapping it, but I`m sure that really shortened the life of the barrel. I will never fire a Molly coated bullet in any of my guns again. :evil:
