I did do a single reheat after quenching, but not a second. I am using the same propane torch I used to get to a dull red glow to begin with. So I am approximating at best. I did note a light straw (yellow) to light orange color when I heated after the quench. I will re-heat again like you suggested before I go for the final finish. I will also inspect under low magnification for any cracks or striations on the working surface.
I also printed out the color chart to put in my project binder for reference.
Cartridges for My Entertainment: 22lr, .223 Rem, 30-06, 380 ACP, 38 spcl, 357 mag/max, , 35 Remington, 35 Whelen, 358 Norma Mag, 10mm Auto, 45 ACP. Mmmmkay what project can I do next... oh, I can't right now I am going hunting!
