Moly coated Billy Bullets

Saw these at the gun show this weekend. Any of you use them?

NOPE! Haven't seen them and even if I did I don't think I'd buy any! Moly wouldn't be of much help at pistol velocities, also moly is tough to clean from the bore.

I cast my own bullets...Use Red Rooster Zambini Red Lube for my 10mm stuff!

Although I have not used Billy bullets, I do load Bear Creek moly coated bullets for all my guns.

9mm, 40S&W, 45ACP and 10mm. I can tell you without a doubt moly is 1000x easier to clean over lead and about 10x easier to clean over FMJ.

Moly does NOT leave any lead or copper residue in the barrel.

I shoot my moly bullet out of my G19, G21, G22, G23, G27, Steyr M9 and M40, Cold Delta Elite and Dan Wesson CBOB. I also run moly out of my HK USC.

Anyone who states moly doesn't work or make a difference has never run them.

Don't be afraid of moly coated rounds, just make sure you buy good ones like bear creek.

This is very true; they don't leave lead or copper residue... They leave Moly residue which is much worse to clean than either lead or copper!!

I bought a case of moly bullets to try in my 1911 and they are just as smoky and dirty as lead. I have since switched exclusively to FMJ and have no intention of shooting moly bullets again.

Many folks buy them because they are cheaper than jacketed rounds but, IMO they are no better than plain lead bullets. If you want to shoot for cheap, shoot bare lead. Lead is A LOT easier than moly to clean out of your firearm's barrel.

I disagree with Cy. .45 acp Billy Bullets give great results in my SW 625 revolver and my CZ 97b. Clean up is quick and there is little, if any leading. They also create much less smoke than lead bullets. (Hint - I don't use powders that have high nitro content with moly-coated bullets) They are also faster than lead bullets for the same powder charge.

I fired about 100 Billy 200gr LSWCs recently through my new 1911 without any problems.

However, I don't know how well they would perform with full pressure (35,000 psi) 10mm loads. Full pressure loads may need a harder alloy than the standard 92-6-2 mix.

Another plus is that Rudy Warren of Billy Bullets is a great guy to deal with.
