The limited reading I've done about this has got me intrigued, and I'm kicking around the idea of doing this to my rem 700 when I rebarrel. However, after dropping all of that dough on a smooth barrel, how does one keep it from rusting/pitting while doing the rust blue thing? I'm thinking oil or grease in the vicinity of the bluing or rinse bath or whatever can't be good and would muck up the operation. How would you protect the bore?

Thanks,

Vek,

Are you talking about Rust Bluing your Model 700? Like they do to "antique" Muzzle loading rifles?
