    I'd also take a dremel tool with a FELT POLISHING WHEEL with a bit of Jeweler's rouge and run it over the feed surfaces. Easy does it. And clean well afterward.

    Glockfan, I fully understand. I am not knocking any product. Ceracote has a great name and performance. What I don't get is, that the coating is applied to metal to do what? Corrosion resistance, great,.... but surface wear, I don't know so much....

    I am with you, results such as this, really do not provide any thing that is useful. It is marketing Hype. For any comparative test, you need to outline how it was done, against what standards were measurements taken and compared, so that people...

    Pietro, That's not my experience. I've rubbed off the shine of 5-6 REMINGTON 700 BDL's, quad 0 steel wool (0000). I've hunted with them in the rain in CO & NM in & snow too. I've never done any water proofing. One time I slipped crossing a stream...

    Yes Tazza, I can also see that. But question is, why previous blogs remained at 1466 with several postings prior to the 1467 post. I thought that each post goes to next number. For unknown reason, it stayed at 1466 for a while.

    Grmps, you are correct. The materials used for making coatings all reflect heat and tolerate a great deal of pressure. The metallic modification with these coatings so far has appeared to provide slightly better heat reflecting ability. So it is...
