Anyone know where I can find some good information or arguments on Broached barrel rifling vs Forged barrel rifling. Preferably on the net somewhere or in a previous post.

Thanks in Advance

Well, Tex, I used the search button at the top and got six hits in "Art of the Rifle" forum and one hit in "The Smithy" on the string "forged barrels". Give it a try.

Forging is a way of forming, of making, the barrel blank. Broaching is a way of cutting rifling in this barrel blank.
