The .17 Remington is one of the few cartridges that I will keep using moly with.

Yes moly does have a lot of downsides. One trick is to coat the bore with a moly prep then shoot it and DON'T clean it down to bare metal. You should have to clean 100 % about every 3000 rds.

I can only think of 2 reasons to mess with moly
1) high velocity varmint rounds, with my .17 rem I can shoot twice as many pasture poodles before accuracy falls off. My swifts shoot noticably longer with moly.
2) service rifles, I can practice on saturday then shoot a match on sunday with out fussing with the rifle.
I would never take an animal for the table using moly.
