Can someone tell me the difference between Winchester nickel steel barrels and Winchester steel barrels. I think the nickel steel barrels were earlier type barrels. Are they still good to shoot with todays trap loads? thanks Frank

There is no appreciatable difference in the two barrels other than the Nickle steel barrel has a higher content of nickle in the steel which is why many of them turn a lighter purple color and the bluing wears off them easier than the higher carbon content steel in the standard barrels.
