There is much discussion on the internet and around the pot bellied stove about range rod/ramrod materials. At one time or another almost every material suggested has been bad-mouthed as being 'hard on the rifling/bore/crown/etc.' Perhaps muzzleloaders need the chrome treatment to offset this abuse.
Could be Mykeal,
Because even the crown is chromed, so that could very well be the reason.
