I have tried a lot of barnes and had mixed reviews also on the smaller bullets 30cal and down
but like the 416s and 454s.
As to the coated ones the 140gr .284 worked well in the 7 STW at over 3500 ft/sec.
The point with using the barnes book they had the same bullets with or without coatings
I to molly coat my own bullets like you and they do increase velocity.
The down side to moly is that cleaning is more extensive ( Difficult ).
