The title says it all. My new DPMS 24" .308 came in today, and I'm looking for probably 200 rds of BH 168 gr. moly for break in. I already bought 100 rds of Federal match 168 gr. I'll break her in and see which one shoots best, and probably use that ammo exclusively.

IMO, you shouldn't be breaking in a barrel using moly coated bullets. This is the opposite of fire lapping...

You should only need a couple boxes to know which performs better at diff. ranges. If possible, find some M852 and use it as your breaking in ammo, as well as practice stuff.

Armalite recommends break in with moly coated bullets. I have gone off moly, but for a reason I don't understand Armalite is quite specific. You might want to call Armalite Customer Service. They are very good at answering quesitons.
