I have noticed that when chronographing the moly bullet loads,they are quite a bit slower than the same plated bullets. I haven't figured that out yet???
Moly reduces your pressure, thus less velocity.
Moly works as a lubricant, making it easier to get the bullet down the barrel, reducing the amount of pressure built up as your powder expands while turning from a solid to gas.
The only moly coated bullets I use are 55 gr CT ballistic tips. Never shot the non moly ballistic tips, couldn't compare. But the rifle shoots other non moly bullets amazing.
Shot this group with hornady SST's after shooting moly ballistic tips all winter. I don't know why the picture posted twice.
