Re: Moly Coating Bullets
When Moly re-appeared on the Benchrest scene, in the early to mid 90's, a lot of shooters went to it. They quickly found out that the velocity went down with their usual powder charge. Those, who were shooting 28.0 grs. of H322 and 68 gr. bullets @ 3300 fps, had to go up on the powder measure at least 2 clicks to acheive the same velocity. Part of the moly coating process, that many were using, included waxing over the moly with carnuba. I believe the wax lead to bore fouling problems. One by one most BR shooters moved away from moly but, a few die hards remain. Most shooters, that I know, using coated bullets, are using a product known as Danzac. They are not waxing over this coating. One shooter claims he shot his 30 BR all year without cleaning.
