Aight folks, been getting super results out of swift sciracco. Been shooting 150's and 180's. Now are moly coated bullets gonna improve barrel life, or should i coat barrel? Whats best choice....

I'm no expert so i can't list off a bunch of mathematical formulas to support my opinion, but i can read (sorta)... Here's what an expert on barrels said:

Lilja Precision Rifle Barrels - FAQ coated bullets

There will undoubtedly be others chiming in with their experts/expert opinion(s), but i'd guess the folks at Lilja Barrels have a fair bit of experience with these sorta things...
