I was given a box of the C.T.Silver tip bullets,168gr.,.308 cal. and would like to try them.However, I am reluctant to shoot them through my new Hart SS match barrel.I was told by Hart to never shoot a coated bullet through their barrel.This coating on the Silver Tip is Lubralox and not moly.In your collective opinions,will the black "paint-Lubralox" be harmful.Will it be easy to clean?
Someone correct me if I'm wrong but, I believe the warning against coated bullets is geared towards moly because of it's corrosive effects when it comes into contact w/ moisture. I've heard many talk of this but, I haven't seen any results in person.
I should have consulted you in the first place.I thought I would e-mail you,but didn't want to bother you with trivia.
So, are you saying that it is OK for me to shoot these bullets.Believe me when I say that I keep my barrels clean.I am most concerned with that,because I think it will add to the barrel life and accuracy.
If I shoot the Silver Tip and clean properly with Oasso or JB,then I should be ok???I just want to try them,not a steady diet.
Since the black on the bullet is only oxidized guilding copper, if it leaves any fouling in the bore it will be no different then any other copper jacketed bullet and it cna be removed with normal cleaning.
I have used them for years and never had a build up problem of any kind because there is nothing to build up except copper.
Never worry about dropping me an e-mail, I love talking guns and shooting and anything associated with it. I do not know everything for sure but if I do not know something we will certainly figure it out.
