What is Lubalox®?

Lubalox®  is the trade name Winchester uses to describe a black oxide process. It is a very thin oxide bullet coating, often compared to the bluing on a steel firearm.

What are the benefits of Lubalox®?

The primary benefit of Lubalox is reduced barrel fouling. The process creates a surface on the bullet jacket, which increases the number of shots possible between cleanings. Unlike moly-coated bullets, Lubalox-coated bullets leave the barrel residue-free and do not require barrel “seasoning”. Additionally, unlike uncoated bullets that tarnish over time, Lubalox protects the surface of the bullet jacket, keeping it looking like new.

Will Lubalox® harm the gun barrel?

Lubalox does not harm the barrel.  In fact, testing shows that the coating often reduces barrel fouling.

Lubalox® coating  is not a Moly coating.
