    i was just thinking, does anybody know if there are harmfull effects shooting game (for food) with moly coated bullets? i have gotten into using them for practice ammo, and was considering using them for hunting ammo also. unless it poisens the meat.

    It can't be as bad as burnishing the bore with moly, firing the first shot, breathing the smoke, and getting a bad high.

    And THAT will never compare with spraying moly on bullets and breathing the carrier.
    Take the next day off from work.

    i have sprayed bullets with moly, and have no problems. but, i do spray outside, where there is adequet ventilation. next time, go outside and spray, not in your broom closet with the door closed!

    I’ll never forget my experiments with Lyman’s tumbler/moly kit. I’d rather deal with lead…

    I don't see how it's physically possible for any of the micrograms of Moly to ever have any effect, even if you ate the messed-up meat of the wound area. Since folks generally don't eat that meat, I don't really understand the "problem". :D

    oh, i am kind of a pessamist. thinking about the time my wife shot a buck @ about 60 yards, through one lung, top of the heart, and it went over a mile, and basicly bled to death. pumping blood all over the place. so, if a similar situation arose, and the moly would poison us, and all that blood ended up all over the in and outside of the animal, then so would some of the moly. like i said, i am a pessamist, and worry unecessarily about all sorts of stupid stuff like that.

    Then clearly you don't understand homeopathy.

    Being an auto mechanic, and having used molydisulfide grease for lubing constant velocity joints for 30 yrs applied by hand I've seen no ill affects to any of my eighteen fingers:D

    Oh, Flyboy, you mean homeopathy, AKA the Ultimate Fake.

    Homeopathy creates, in me, apathy.

    John, if it wasn't clear, I was mocking the concept as well. Micrograms--if not less--having a biomedical effect, indeed.

    I'm sure it does have a LD50.

    But it would probably be measured in grams.

    Cook the meat using a "Cajun Blackened" recipe and you won't even notice the Moly specks. :D
