Barrel of my MR Nitrite is beating the heck out of my ramrod; just ran it down the barrel to clean it out before it's maiden voyage to the range and it got all scratched up. Maybe the Nitride finish is just real hard but is this normal? Never had it happen before on others that I've had with SS barrels. Anyone else have a Nitrite barrel and seeing this?

Pretty typical, its just a painted ramrod like all the others. Nothing you really can do to prevent the paint from scratching off it. A bore guide may help, but its normally a burden to keep on the barrel at all times.

They should have anodized it. I have an aluminum ram rod that's anodized, and it has no scratches.

Typical CVA shotcuts.

I use separate range rods for loading and cleaning. I only use the MR ramrod for a re-load when hunting. The anodized finishon the rodis tough but will wear with lots of repeated use.

I was surprised to see it happen so fast; I have only cleaned the barrel to give it an initial cleaning and get the oils and stuff off from it being new - I'd say it's been in and out of the barrel less than 20 times. I believe it's painted as I'm getting black debris from it. I have other another muzzy with an anodized ramrod that still look new after 5 years of use. I thought maybe the Nitride was doing it since it does put a hardened surface on the metal. I suppose it isn't a big deal - just surprised they don't supply their "flagship" models with better quality accessories but as long as the rifle itself is of quality... The ramrod can easily be replaced

Anyone have any suggestions for a range rod? Maybe a good question for Carlos - I'm gonna have a list of stuff I'll need to order in the next couple of weeks from him anyway. Just was curious what you guys are using.

At the range, I use a combination of my rifles ramrod and a Tipton resin rodI bought for my shotgun. I had to get a thread adapter to use with the muzzleloader but it works great.

A cheaper alternative for a muzzleloader would be http://www.cainsoutdoor.com/shop/item.asp?item=18091

Go to a large welding supply and get a brass braze rod. I use a 3/8" X 36" for my short barrels. An old pool ball makes a good handle as does an antique door knob. Tap one end for jags and cleaning stuff. Drill and tap the ball, thread the rod, JB or epoxy the threads. I even add a cross pin. Use a copper tubing fitting for a centralizer.

I even used 1/4" braze rod to make a rod for carrying in the tubes for a .32 and a shotgun.
