Hello artillery Shop welcome.
Titanium, interesting. Difficult machining. Tough material. Any particular reason you choose Titanium?
Is that a model of a specific cannon? Are you copying an original design (safer) What size it-what pounder-Bore diameter.
Thank you Double D.
Yes it's very difficult for machining, milling, high precision lapping...
The reasons : Very resistant (more than steel), lighter weight (steel and bronze), original products, technical challenge.
