Nosler's Combined Technology Ballistic SilverTip Bullets are a cutting edge design, combining the ballistic performance and rapid expansion benefits of their Ballistic Tip bullets, and the Lubalox coating patented by Winchester, which reduces barrel fouling.
Streamlined polymer tip resists deformation in the magazine, provides a streamlined meplat for flat trajectory, and initiates positive expansion on impact with small and medium game.
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. The primary benefit of Lubalox is reduced barrel fouling. The process creates a surface on the bullet jacket, which increases the amount 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. Lubalox does not harm the barrel. In fact, testing shows that the coating often reduces barrel fouling. Lubalox coating is not a Moly coating.
