If I were putting together a rifle for target shooting or hunting I would not get a chrome lined barrel.
If I could have a chrome lined barrel on every rifle, carbine and pistol I own, I would. Even my Savage 30-06, which I sometimes hunt with in poor weather, even snow. I'm constantly thinking about how the bore "might" be getting a little rusty.

Yes, I said pistol. I have a Steyr GB which has a chrome barrel and it is extremely accurate. Some folks like stainless - personally,I don't think it is as good as carbon steel with quality hardchrome. The carbon steel is over all harder than stainless, and the hard chrome makes it even that much harder. There's only one reason barrels aren't hard chromed - cost.
