Winchester 64-grain .223 Power-Point Plus

I have two boxes of this ammo. It is MOLY-COATED, which I don't shoot. If you can use it, let me know. You must actually want to shoot it, not resell it.

Molybdenum disulfide is a high temperature solid lubricant used by some to coat bullets. Supposedly confers several benefits, for instance dramatically reduces copper fouling build-up, makes cleaning easier, even increased accuracy. Its use is somewhat controversial. People who use it in their rifle generally use it exclusively since it changes the POI, so you must either resight or thoroughly clean the bore of moly.

The ammo has been spoken for, this posting is closed.

You snooze, you lose! My Mini has been wanting to try some of that, and I just happened to be in the right place at the right time.

THANK YOU, KKINA!!!

if those are factory loads and not handloads the stuff winchester coated those bullets with is called 'Lubalox' which is a alloy coating adhered to the bullet by a method known as Oxide plating, its not Moly.

OK, I shot it. I'll share my 50 yard zero target, shot starting with a cold clean barrel. Unfortunately as the barrel warmed/became moly-coated things went downhill rapidly at 100.

EDIT: After reading some of Timlt's posts on his range experiences, I decided to share my 100 yard target after all. It may shed some light on shortened/original length barrels. Tim's experience at 100 when firing a 20 round string was very similar to mine. His barrel has been shortened, mine is original length. It appears that heat is a worse culprit than vibrations. My 20 rounds were fired without pausing to let the barrel cool, averaging 5 - 8 seconds between shots. You'll note there are more than 20 holes in the paper. Some were there before I pasted the Shoot-N-See target over the printed one.

Well, that's a hell of a 50-yard target. Just out of curiosity, how bad was 100 yds?

It opened up to 6" with 20 rounds on one target. They were all over the target. Of course it could be ME, but somehow I just don't think so.

I did make an interesting discovery, though. If you fire 35 rounds of .223 into a stack of logs that are 18" - 24" in diameter, they'll chew their way through. I made my backstop out of railroad ties and 6' sections of a large pine tree that I had to cut because it died. I had my target box about 6' in front of the backstop, so the rounds were hitting pretty close to the same spot in the logs. A few made it out the backside of the pile.
