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.
- Polymer Silvertip. Polymer Silvertip prevents deformation in the magazine.
- Ultra-Thin Jacket Mouth. Assures violent expansion at either end of the velocity scale.
- Lubalox ®Exterior Coating. Reduces fouling, pressure and friction between bullet and bore; provides longer barrel life, easier cleaning and enhanced accuracy.
- Varmint Jacket Wall Design. The uniform, gradual thickening at the bullet’s mid-section is designed to keep the Ballistic Tip® Varmint together until impact – at any velocity.
