Recessed crown chamfer

Nathan, when you get a sec, could you please give me an idea of what you mean by:

"...if utilizing a recessed target crown on a custom barrel, have a small chamfer cut into the muzzle (as seen on the SPS) for added muzzle protection. The true target style crown which features no chamfer can suffer in the hills."

I assume you mean recessed at an angle, i.e. chamfered, rather than a starkly cut recess. But why does this make a difference "in the hills"?

Hi Rob - simply to add a bit more depth and protection as per the SPS style muzzle.

Alternatively, one could simply cut the initial step to a greater depth. This is possibly preferable.

Ah, ok. I thought there might be something special about the chamfer angle itself, but couldn't figure out what.
