Thanks ulav8r.

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!

Busy weekend with 35 Remington. I have the stock about 98% done. Just tweaking minor shaping and getting all the rasp/sanding marks out. I have it finished out at 80 grit. Any marks I see in the finish are light so I am going to work it in 120 grit next. I also have begun working the bottom steel getting pits out and filing/polishing. I am still going to sand blast and park all the metal. I probably am going to go with a semi gloss black Duracoat finish to somewhat match the gloss black Redfield scope.

I also set the headspace on the barrel. I ran 11 rounds through it from the bench. 9 rounds were Montana Gold 158 gr sitting on top of 11.0 gr Trailboss. Ran these first to check for any obvious issues. Then ran a 200 gr Rem Corelokt factory round down the tube followed by a 195 gr cast bullet sitting on 9.0 gr of Trailboss. They all stabilized at 50 yards and we're on paper so I got a starting point.
