I also wonder if spraying on a coating is as effective as the tumble-on process; it seems to me that the latter would actually embed the moly' in the lead.
    That said, I did notice less leading at high velocities with the Kano-sprayed bullets.

    I know that's not much help, but maybe you will get more answers. At least I can assure you that I did *not* notice any ill effects of the Kano spray.
    would it help to put the moly in the melt?

    well as the original poster many years back as shotman then
    kano has a product called Pyrolube it does have a very small amount of moly in the lube. it works better in molds than the Kroil,BUT
    it is only sold in a GAL . THAT gal is about $200

    I just received another 8 oz can in the mail today. I got my first can from a friend who also sold saws and did maintenance on my saw grinders, as well as providing Ni Babbitt and an occasional 60 lb ingot of lead that ended up in the back of my truck...It took MANY years to use that can up, and I still have a bit left. I quit using WD-40 since it dried and left a yellow and very hard residue.

    Kroil does really good in my molds most of the time. There are sometimes when I just have to blast the cavities with RemOil, and then cast. A few casts and the wrinkles are gone. Sometimes I gotta smoke the cavities, and use the large kitchen matches for that.

    Kroil works wonders for cleaning rifle bores, too. I use Outers Foam, let it sit for a spell, then swab it out. A patch or three soaked with Kroil has the bore literally squeaky clean, whether I've fired jacketed, cast or a combination of both...

    Did I ever mention that I hate to trim brass?
