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?

Re: Melonite barrel treatment

I came across this thread and I was very interested. Learned a lot about. It ride and metals. I hate to see it end.
Any more experiences and info?

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.

Re: Melonite barrel treatment

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.

Re: Melonite barrel treatment

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.
