What to do with old barrels

I am starting to get a few old barrels taken off my rifles and others. Any idea on what I can do with them?
Got to be something that is useful.

    If u make your own breaks then muzzle brake material if not they can be used for fireform barrels sometimes. Depending on what the original caliber was.

    Fireform barrels, and use pieces for your next build for a bump guage.

    If contours allow: have them cut down for times that accuracy is not as important as having a fast handling short barrel ( very easy to swap back in). If you think you might want to give a try at cartridge designing they are very useful for preliminary try outs because they're free.

    If the barrels have any life left in them, you can sell them in the classified section. You won't get much for a factory barrel, but at least its something.
