    .458" bore blank barrel

    This is a blank barrel made of 4140 moly steel, Shaft OD =1.240"/31.50mm. The bore is cut rifled, six groves .007" deep with a twist of 1-20", it is 27"/ 31.50mm long and has been crowed with a machined OD at each end true to the bore. Its not perfect, has a few scratches from the cut rifling, have lead lapped with diamond past to smooth things out, would be ok for lead bullets. My Sharps barrel was not this good but it`s shooting ok, so could be a project for someone . Only $200.

    Yes, that's what I'm using in my Sharps, 3031 is good but I`m only using lead bullets and black powder as well. I made this barrel for black and nitro powder cartridges. That target is with 3031 38.5grs and 405gr hollow base bullet.
