I found that article again! its about a home applied moly type coating for bullets, that if you use to do the break-in on a barrel, it will condition the bore for higher velocities, less fouling etc.. (this is for a non-chrome BM varminter)

anybody know about or agree with that?

The moly coating packs into the pits in the barrel during firing, and keeps the copper from being sheared and building up in the pits.  The moly coating is somewhat of a lube, so you will gain FPS due to less resistance of the bullet when it moves down the barrel.

The downfall, You have to have the bore perfectly clean of copper fouling before you start to fire the ammo, and the moly coating is a mess.  Both in applying it to the tips, and handle the rounds.  Unless your pulling/installing bullets one by one into the chamber, you stand a chance of wipping off the coating, and running a standard copper bullet down the bore to shear copper into the pitting of the bore.
