Yeah, I think it's well worth it. I have not heard of anyone burning out a nitrided barrel yet. I've heard estimates of doubling or tripling of barrel life or more. You can still fire crack a bore if you shoot it too hot, but if you treat it well it will slow down throat erosion and it should last a long time. Even if you only increased a barrels life by 25% it has already paid for itself, not to mention all the other benefits.
Your barrel should be new or almost new. You have to disassemble every thing you want treated and remove all springs. No Aluminum, etc. There are two outfits you need to go through for MMI Trutec. One is Benchmark Barrels. I know Trutec will do 700 actions, and not any cast actions. Not sure about H&M
H&M has a little cooler bath than Trutec (1000* vs 1100*, or something like that) and will do any action and triggers, etc as well. Everything must be disassembled and remove all springs. I plan on having my triggers done as well.
