NECO-Coat  Bullet  Moly-Coating will:

           

1)      Decrease fouling;

2)      Generally enhance accuracy;

3)      Make cleaning easier;

4)      Reduce friction;

5)      May increase barrel life very significantly;

6)      May reduce bullet drop—most notable at longer ranges with long bearing surface bullets;

7)      Works perfectly with all types of  bullets, including: hollow point, plastic tipped and lead or lead-tipped jacketed bullets;

8)      Not be a “cure-all” for other firearm-related problems such as poor bedding, rough bores, etc.

 

Another benefit of the moly coating proved to be reduced fouling and greater ease of cleaning.”

The patented NECO-Coat Process (“Moly Coating/plating”) is a method of “impact plating” molybdenum disulfide (moly,”MoS2) into the surface of cast or jacketed bullet, followed by an outer coating of carnauba wax. Molybdenum disulfide is one of the best dry sliding-friction lubricants in the world, and the purpose of NECO-Coat is of course to reduce friction between bullet and barrel bore. The entire process is accomplished with the use of a tumbler (a rotary tumbler is recommended, however a vibratory tumbler can be used with equal effectiveness,) employing hardened (Rockwell C50), ground steel balls as an impact plating medium.

NECO Coat Technology exploits one of molybdenum disulfide’s unique properties: when moly is driven against a metal surface it forms a tight mechanical bond to the metal (it also has a natural affinity for metals), very much like plating of one metal on another. A jacketed bullet coated by ordinary calipers or micrometers has no detrimental effect on the fit of bullets in the bore.

This process was originally developed simply to allow a greater number of accurate shots between cleanings by reducing bore fouling, and it performs this function extremely well. An unanticipated benefit is the improved accuracy that has been observed in many rifles and handguns firing coated bullets. The reduction in bore friction results in less barrel vibration and reduced distortion of bullets during firing.

Even more startling, are tests of bullets coated by the NECO Process has, in many instances, shown what appears to be an increase in ballistic co-efficiency that gives improved flight characteristics at long range with rifle bullets. Competitive shooters have documented reductions in drop as large as five minutes of angle (5MOA) at 1,000 yards with jacketed match bullets. Limited testing by a large ammunition manufacturer using advanced instrumentation showed an increase in ballistic co-efficiency of at least three percent comparing coated to uncoated bullets from the same lot. It is believed this is mainly the result of bullets exiting the barrel more smoothly and allowing them to “go to sleep” (fly without oscillation) sooner.

“Most surprising of all was what appeared to be an improvement in the bullets’ flight characteristics with moly applied. To put it briefly, moly-coated projectiles required less sight elevation at long ranges than what was predicted by our ballistics software, while the uncoated bullets required more."

Mr. Dan Hackett, Modern Rifles Editor, Buckmaster Magazine, August 26, 1993, in written comments to NECO (later published).

While the fouling is always less, accuracy enhancement does vary with bullet type, cartridge, etc. There are no reports of a decrease in accuracy or of barrel damage from any customer.

By the end of 1997, the NECO-Coat Bullet moly coating /plating system had been well proven in serious competition, including winning national Benchrest matches, while being used extensively by military marksmanship teams. Additionally, the process has found a strong following among varmint hunters as well as casual shooters.

The use of the moly-coated bullets will also impregnate some molybdenum disulfide into the bore’s metal. This moly residue is not visible under 100+-power borescope magnification. The moly is actually within the crystalline structure of the metal, which we believe is exactly what it is supposed to do. This non-visible moly “residue” causes no problems and is perfectly normal and desired. The components of NECO-Coat Kit are non-toxic and environmentally safe.
