They are already seeing greatly extended barrel life with them vs other standard rifled barrels comparing same loads, same calibers so I'm thinking that If I get one made and have it melonited shortly after break in.
My next project is going to be a from the ground up custom so I'll want to ensure I get as much life out of it as possible.
Wildrose, Thanks for the link, it was actually very informative... The only diffrence now is that the Schneider Barrels are button rifled barrels vs forged. Also, what is the process to have the barrel Melonited? Will it effect the barrel diameter or headspacing when reinstalling the barrel?
Long Range Long Timer, I tried Retumbobut I didn't have the same results that I did with with H1000. I also like that the H1000 is supposed to be more temp stable, being in Arizona, I tend to do most of my shooting in the summer and the hunt in the winter, which can be a 70 degree temp swing. Also, do you know how they modified the 300 RUM reamer to get the 300 EOL Mag?
