Re: Lilja 3-groove 6mm Barrels

S1. I'm pretty new to this but it's clear that you are a veteran. What is the "Black Star craze". I had a 243 rebarrelled by Black Star a number of years ago. It never shot up to par and I finally sold it. Does Black Star still exist? What was their problem? Thanks for all your help!!

    "Black Star craze"

    Black Star was using what they called a super stainless which was S 700. Actually Lothar Walther was making the barrels to BlackStar specifications. I'm not sure what the hardness was on the Rockwell C scale of the stainless is.
    I don’t believe that Black Star was hand lapping the barrels instead they use some sort of electro-chemical bore polishing technique. Which to this day they have it patented.

    Back during the "Black Star craze" I bought two of there barrels in 6mm 1-14” twist HV taper. I got them chambered for my Panda HV in 6PPC .262NK. I though that the barrels shot ok newer good enough to shoot big match. They were a bitch to clean. To this day I still have both of the barrels “low rounds” i'm going to use them for ground hog hunting some day.

    S1

    Did the 30 cal barrels foul bad?
    The 6 barrels did and they were a bitch to clean even with the BLUE GOOP..

    Did you do the chamber work on you Black Stars. I heard they are hard on reamers.

    I found this warning at: http://www.reamerrentals.com/policypage.htm

    Do not use rental reamers on “super-alloy” steels, Black Star barrels, Do not use rental reamers on “super-alloy” steels, Black Star barrels
