Based on what my smith says and some other reading I've done, I'll go with H&M. I will be getting the actions and triggers done as well. I'll run a few down the tube until copper fouling is greatly dimmished. I'll use a light load of slow powder and heavy bullets for the break in. My smith wants me to give it an accuracy check before sending it off, so the break in will be par of that.

If you use Bore Tech to clean, do not use a brass or bronze jag. The Bore Tech will start eating them immediately and give a flase copper indication. I use nickle plated jags. To ensure all copper is out, on your last pass, stroke the bore a couple of times with the BTE and let it sit for about 40 min. If you get a white or very faint blue patch, you're done.

Re: Melonite barrel treatment

All pieces to be treated should be disassembled. Last I talked with H&M, they were turning barrels in 4-6 days plus shipping time.

Re: Melonite barrel treatment

I contacted H&M a couple of years ago and was quoted a "batch charge" of about $200, whether I had one barrel or a dozen. Have things changed there? MMI charges me $60 per with a discount if I send more than 3 or 4 at a time.

H&M quoted me $100 per barrel and $200 per gun to include action and any other steel parts. The 2 biggest reasons I am going with them is reports that their final finish is very good and they also will do any action.
