Good question. I wasn't sure so I looked it up. 

Hexagonal Boron Nitride is a coating that is supposed to help prevent copper fouling (which I found interesting) and increase barrel life. Edit: it appears to be pretty slick/slippery so that might have been the OP's line of thinking: perhaps coating the bullets (or mags) might have a benefit (e.g., mags drop easier)?

 

I found the copper fouling portion to be interesting as I generally only load pistol rounds and have used bullets with most of the coatings out there (Hi-Tek, polymer, ceramic, moly) that coated bare lead. Perhaps coating copper bullets is a rifle thing?

Hexagonal boron nitride. Long range rifle guys coat barrels and bores in it helps reduce shot to shot variation and cold bore fliers, lowers chamber pressure, etc.
