    Coming from the land of Powder Burning toys, and reloading my own ammo… Has anyone ever produced a moly (or like coating) coated pellet?  I use to shoot uncoated lead in my pistols and was tired of the grim getting all over everything, not to mention issues with breathing the vapor and handling 25,000 lead projectiles a year.  I switched to SNS coated bullets which run cleaner and can run at the same FPS with less powder.

    Ya, I’ve tried it!, with mixed results? Main problem I had was burnishing it into the soft lead without damage to pellets ( head & skirt) you can just rub it on?  But excess seems to get blown down barrel before skirt fully expands causing some other issues?I kind of have an idea in the back of my head, but have kept quiet because A) I’ve been concentrating in other areas b) not sure the time spent testing-perfecting  will be that beneficial? C) which leads me back A)! Also really depends on the quality of the molybdenum?, I can get my hands on some high quality moly, but its not cheap and even the molybdenum can vary from lot to lot?

    Not sure when you tried it, but the newer stuff is much nicer then what was on the market 5-6 years ago . Maybe I'll buy some under sized pellets and send them off too be coated, or see they will make me a 20ish grain .22 coated slugs .

    I was experimenting about 9mo. Ago!, it was moly powder BEL-RAY is the excact brand, not that it matters but is very expensive, I’m not sure what they are using now in centerfire comp’s w/ copper clad bullets like BERGER, BILLY BRAWAND, GENTER etc.( that’s what I shot out of my ppc’s ) if they are even still using it?, now if your talking slugs that’s a different story, I don’t shoot them and probably never will? In a airgun! Now I’m only implying that I would coat these myself not send them anywhere to do it,I would think that would be tremendously expensive?, I will continue some research on my own down the road but at this point not a priority… Also I’m not familiar w/ SNS coatings is that a CO., Brand name, technology is it different than molybdenum? Sorry I’ve just been out of the competitive center fire game for a long time!

    Shouldn't be to pricey, it's less than $4.00 per 500 increase for the 9mm projectiles .
