Where does one go to get barrel steel?

I need a barrel blank at least 36" in the bigger bore diameter; e.g. 0.735"+

Thanks in advance.

Whiz- Your best/easiest/cheapest bet may be to do what PerazziBigBore did on his cole project, and that was to get ahold of the hastings 870 wadlock barrels, remove the ribs and barrel bands, and use those as "blanks".

Whiz. Maybe you could talk to Bruce Bowen and see what he has around the shop. Not too far from home either.Mike

Whiz I made a few barrels for the local x card shooters. I went to local steel supply place here and had them to order the size that I wanted. You could do the same there.

Thanks, guys.

I will get hold of Dennis DeVault. I have to ship the steel over to Italy, but Marcello has some ocntacts he's checking on.

Why not have Marcello contact Hastings. Their bbls all come France. They could probably cut them to any OD taper he wants alonf with the ID.

I'd call Jeff Mainland at Kolar. If he doesn't have a blank around, he'll know where to refer you to. (bad grammar).
