Re: Melonite barrel treatment

Are any barrel makers using Mar-10? Also would 4150 with a Melonite treatment give the highest strength and wear resistance?

    Maybe I missed it but did you ever get your gun and/or barrel dipped?

    Re: Melonite barrel treatment

    I have patiently waited for sufficient time to pass for some of these melonited / nitrided barrels to exceed their normal throat torching round count.

    Would those shooting treated barrels please take a moment and update those of us contemplating using the process on;
    the calibre,
    round count,
    Hawkeye bore scope viewed throat condition
    and if those rounds were under rapid competition-prairie dog town or sane slower measured firing conditions ???
    Thank you, in advance, for sharing your experiences and knowledge.

    Are you waiting plenty of time and loosing patience for us to prove something for you? I guess the question is maybe being perceived wrongly for me. I definitely not buying a Hawkeye bore scope for others curiosity when the accuracy comparison of the 7mm RUM, 26 Nosler, 240 Weatherby round count goes up 1000 to 1400 rounds compared to other rifles I have built in the past. That tells me what I need to know. Hopefully this helps your curiosity.

    That sounds like impressive improvement. Thanks for sharing that info. You shoot WAY more than I.

    I have one melonited barrel and will have a second in the next 6 months. But I'll likely never shoot out a single barrel in my lifetime - melonite treatment or not. There's probably a lot of shooters like me that never shoot enough to ever be able to provide a meaningful comparison in their lifetime.
