SS or blued barrel for hunting rifle??

Hi,

Looking to get a hunting rifle.
What is better for hunting? SS or blued barrel?? It does not matter how it looks as long it last dependable. Wich one will last longer and why? I see that the SS cost more but I do not buy a rifle every day so the 50 to 100 difference does not matter.

Thanks

Chris

SS is more durable and has the added advantage of resisting rust. The SS doesn't heat up as fast either. For most shooters you will probably never see the difference between the two so get what you want and take good care of it. Thumbs up
