Anybody still Moly coating bullets

Anybody still doing this, I remember it was all the rage for a while, seems like it is dropping off in popularity.

    Still use it. Works for me. Just depends on the circles you chat in. Some areas, moly is growing in popularity.

    I use for my .243. Works great in a high volume varmint cartridge. I tried it in a 300 RUM and didn't like it. I had to clean the gun so often that I saw no reason to use it such a large caliber. If I can only shoot 20-25 rnds before cleaning, why would I want to waste 3-5 on re-coating the bore?

    Re: Anybody still Moly coating bullets

    I still moly coat all my SBT's in a media tumbler. It increases the BC. It tumbles the bullets point into a needle shape. Now some people will say that a super sonic bullet that it doesn't matter even if it was a hollow point because of the shock wave is out in front. These needle point bullets have less drop on paper at long ranges. So thy must have higher BC after the transition.

    How

    If moly coating in a media tumbler, do you have a dedicated tumbler for this? How difficult is it to get a good coating on the bullets?
