with respect, I don't believe that long range hunting and shiny barrels conflict. I'm to far away to make a difference... but I understand the idea behind not wanting shiny.

    Meloniting is a hot nitride salt bath.

    Use the search function here to read up on it, and or/try google.

    It improves barrel life.

    Makes it pretty much impervious to rust.

    relieves stress.

    Stiffens/hardens the steel considerably.

    Takes the "shiny" off of polished stainless.

    Is self Lubricating.

    You are not changing the weight of a barrel and/or action with any of these coatings nor is there any significant difference in weight between stainless and CM steel.
