Ghosts of the past

Perhaps muzzleloaders need the chrome treatment to offset this abuse.
Perhaps more so at one time as we have learned some "hard" lessons about glass rods. These are pretty much a thing in the past but you still see many older cut and recrowned barrels. I still have many full length glass ramrods that I don't allow within ten feet of any of my SideLocks. One day at the range a fellow saw me using one of my bore guides on my range-rod and he commented that it looked like a pretty neat idea.....

Many a Big- [I] or Investment Arms barrels, had chromed bores.

Be Safe !!!
'Fundamental truths' are easy to recognize because they are verified daily through simple observation and thus, require no testing.
