I am doing my best trying to get away from moly coated bullets because of trouble and time it takes to moly coat bullets. Once you start shooting moly coated bullets you are, for the most part, married to moly coated bullets in that barrel. My question is, I painstakingly cleaned my barrel out removing all the moly, but when I did my groups opened up tremendously. I was shooting a 1 inch group at 300 yards and went to a 2.25 inch group at 300 yards. Same bullet, minus moly, same powder, had to go down 1 grain because of pressure change. Every thing I have read said moly did not effect group size, am I doing something wrong? Should I just go back to shooting moly coated bullets again?
