Re: Melonite or Salt nitride barrels

Shortgrass, my heresay comment was based on my in ability to confirm whether or not it was true as I don't have one. Hopefully it wasn't taken out of context.

Who are you using for the process? MMI?

I really appreciate your feedback here, it's nice to have some first person observations. Please continue.

I'm using MMI Tru-Tech. Contact Rodney Lanier @ rlanier77@hotmail.com If the barrel is bead blasted before treatment it matches Blk. Cerakote very closely. I've not seen it effect accuracy, but, it is extending barrel life. I can 'see' it through my bore scope.

when I was looking into it and did a few searches, one forum, site after another. that name popped up like a jack in the box. Like a 4-5 to 1 ratio over all others

Being competent with a given rifle is far more important than impressive ballistics and poor shootability. High velocity misses never put a steak in the freezer.
