They won't screw up your barrel, "but" if you dont like them try tumbling them. Or find someone
that will trade you some plain bullets.

If you change from the Molly coated bullets to the plain jacket type you will probably loose some
velocity and performance unless you work up new loads.

If your 338s like them I wouldn't change.

The CT bullets are NOT molly coated. Nosler calls it Lubalox. I shoot them out of my 25-06. They will not harm your bore. I talked with a Nosler tech about this very subject.

What is Lubalox?
Lubalox® is the trade name Winchester uses to describe a black oxide process. It is a very thin oxide bullet coating, often compared to the bluing on a steel firearm.

As much as I love my 338-378s they are a pain to clean as it is.If I add more in the bore it will be worse.Its powder fouling thats the problem now .I use Nosler Partitions now 250 gr and love tham and have shot some groups under an inch at 300 yards with them.My rifle after 60 or so shots patterns instead of grouping if not cleaned down to the metal.I wish there was a magic foam or something.I have tried a few they didnt get it all out.This coating on these bullets will come off a little on your fingers if you handle them renough.I will try tounbling them thanks .
