Moly coated zink alloy bullets question???

Are they any good? are they safe? are they worth consideration?
Thanks for looking.

Zinc is lower density than lead, so bullets of a given style will come out a good deal lighter; about 40% less, as I recall. It is harder than lead, but not hard enough to hurt gun barrels. Some of the first non lead bullets for indoor ranges were zinc. They kind of come and go in popularity. I did not know anybody was making them with moly coating. Ought to do ok.
