Back when I was working for the foundry, we used to cast barrel liners for .50 cal weapons, and for the life of me, I cannot remember what the metal was. I know it was a greyish white color, and when you machined or ground it, it stunk like the devil, sort of an acrid/sulphurous smell is about the best I can describe it. It was also pretty heavy and tough to machine, as I recall. Any clues?

Would that be Stellite?

Ding! We have a winnah! Thanks. Don't know why I couldn't remember the name of it. Must getting the Old Timers disease. ;)
