Default If you shoot moly coated bullets do you need to follow a certain cleaning procedure?

I'm going to try some nosler partition gold bullets, and I remember someone telling me you need to follow some sort of special cleaning procedure, and after cleaning theres still another thing you have to do, which I can't remember, or the bullets won't shoot very well....If this is true, I dont know the procedure, please enlighten me. With ballistic tips I've always just cleaned it clean, then shot 1 or 2 round through it before I go hunting to sort of "break it in" again. If there's a difference please let me know

before I go hunting I always fire one round through my rifle to get all the oils out from cleaning it, Because of something I noticed when shooting my rifle that first shot from a clean barrel hits the target differently everytime but then every shot there after is right on.

GorV...Here is a good site to learn how to properly clean a barrel that you shoot moly coated bullets through. http://www.bergerbullets.com/faq.htm Just copy and paste the link to your browser.
It is recommended that you don't interchange moly coated and non-coated bullets without thoroughly cleaning your barrel before switching.

GorV...it looks like you just have to click on the hyperlink. No copy and pasting.
