Yes sir, that is how I understand it as well. Although, there may be more to it as I can think of at least one premier 'smith that will not touch a barrel after nitriding; I wish I could remember what the reasoning was.

Yup, you need to have anything you nitride just the way you want it before the treatment. After that it is pretty much non workable. It might be possible to open up and tap mount holes with some hard bits but no rethreading or chambering or anything like that.

Picked 'em today and as soon as my Magnetospeed gets here, which I ordered from Midway, I am on my way to the range for some load work!

Rich, that is pretty much the sum of his issues, he just doesn't like to tear stuff up needlessly. It seems to be more of choice rather than ability. Several guys have posted that they dont care one way or another.... I can't remember what the Rockwell hardness goes up to.

Did you order the V1 or V2? That chrony is SO much easier to use, even for a lazy dude like me.

I'm looking forward to your results. Let us know how hard they were to clean initially, i've read they can be a real bear when clean directly from the Melonite process.

Yeah, there is some brown crud (left over residue) in the bore that needs to be scrubbed out. Will be working on that tomorrow.

There was a very detailed thread on SH covering this subject. I saved it due to the content being so good. If you want, I can email you a PDF copy of it.

Mine had the brown crud that was difficult to remove too.
If you don't mind, please e-mail me a copy of the article as well.
I have the v-2 Magspeed and love it. One problem I did have though was my 30/375 S.I. with the 4 port mussle break blew the buckle right off of the connecting strap........Rich
