moly coating bullets, yes or no?

Is there any real advantage to moly coating your bullets? increase in speed? less barrel heat and ware?

Re: moly coating bullets, yes or no?

If you do a search on "moly" you will likely be on overload for the next week or two. :>) Some sites have pages & pages of opinions on the use of moly.

I only use moly coated bullets in high volume varmint cartridges. In my opinion, it does reduce copper fouling considerably. However, I don't over do it and clean my rifle bores regularely. Other than that, I'm not too if its worth the trouble in any of my other rifles.

On the money. I use it in my .243 for PD and target shooting. I can shoot it for several days with no drop off in accuracy. I will always use moly for my varmint rigs.

As far as the bigger bores, I would leave it alone. You have to clean them more often, who wants to waste a few of those to settle the bbl back in.
