Re: Barrel: stainless or ???
Okay, that explains alot. Thanks. But that makes me curious once again so I have yet another question. Why does someone not just cut rifle the first half or so of the passes through a barrel and then button rifle the last half or so of the passes? According to my train of thought, wouldn't this sart out the lands while removing some of the metal, thereby incuring less stress when followed by the button rifling? Yet at the same time, wouldn't the button strengthen the lands as it pressed against them? Or is there a barrel maker that allready do this? Or is it just too complicated/ineffeciant to do? Sorry for rambling on, but I am new to all of this and am just trying to figure it all out. Thanks again.
