Will the spray molly leave Molly fouling in the barrel like the molly coated bullets do?

    Alucard,

    That is a loaded question and I will not get drawn in by it.

    Anyone who is fouling barrels using moly, by all means should not be using it.

    Have a good day, Sir.

    Oh, no, I didn't mean anything by it. All the calibers that I have are all the ultra velocity types - .220 Swift, .300 RUM - It doesn't seem to matter what I use in them, they always foul up. If the spray Molly leaves less, then I am going to have to try that stuff out. Thanks for the advice.

    Alucard,

    Not sure if the spray will work at all. What I do know is if I vibrate to imprint the moly (as I usually do) with the large hollow point opening I will fill up the cavity with moly. I have been there before, and if I can avoid that I will.

    Gotta get going.

    With the Lyman moly coating, the moly is not loose in the tumbler with just the bullets. There is a ceramic media that the bullets and moly are mixed in with. About 1/8 of a teaspoon will do several hunder bullets. I coated the 68 gr Wildcats with no problems of moly in the HP.

    Alucard,

    I think I might know what is causing the copper deposition you experienced.

    If you have any 68/130 Wildcats around, when you get some time, measure the OD of some of them. I measured the 68s some time ago and measured the 130s this morning, they are both .309 on my equipment. If this is the case with yours, what do you think??

    Is it possible the "robust" OD is contributing to the copper deposition?? It would make sense to me.

    And with that startling discovery, I am wondering just how good my spray moly will stand up to those forces. I don't think it will. I think I will have to pound the stuff into the jacket so it will hold.

    Hey, wait a second. I thought I read something about someone using Lyman moly etc., and they said it worked without filling up the cavity. I'll have to look for that information. It was around here somewhere..... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    B.J.,

    Thanks for the tip!!!!!!!
