Re: accuracy expectation from chrome moly?

I've used Tubb FF on new chrome molly and stainless barrels with great success. Even used it on a shot out Lilja and gained a few more accurate shots.

I'd try different primers first though.

There should be no accuracy expectation difference between CM and SS.
