Re: moly question
Sinclair's now owned by Brownells, put out a book several years ago that had a chapter about the use of Moly. In the story they took some barrels that had been shot with and with-out moly and sectioned them, so they could be put under very close scruitiny in their lab. They went on to say that after the Moly had been stripped from the sectioned barrels they found corrosion and pitting under the moly deposits like they had never seen before. In conclusion they also said that they would never let Moly touch any of their barrels again. A friend of mine that has studied chemistry at the collegiate level, said that Moly, oxygen and atmospheric humidity combine and make for an acidic condition inside of your barrel, and that the effects of this are intensified with the high friction, pressure and high temperature when shooting. He also has a what was a very good Kreiger barrel on a rifle that since shooting moly bullets doesn't have the accuracy edge that it did before. With what the people at Sinclair's said and after what happened to my friend rifle, I wouldn't let Moly touch anything of mine.
