    A quick search only turned up one older thread on this, and most other results are "Argument Threads" about Melonite Vs. DLC and the like.

    Melonite and Ionbond. What are the differences? Pros and cons? Help an uneducated heathen out here! Making decisions on a 6" 10mm, Guncrafter No Name. For me this is big bucks and I want to do it right! :)
