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.
