I would think that they are heat treated when made, not just turned/ground out of stock and dumped in a bin, but who knows. The main problem is the base material now being used and/or the heat treat process. The radius on the ends of them is probably suspect as well. Something like nintriding might help life, but you still need good base metal and it will add quite bit of cost.Novice question here. Dealing mostly with firearms….what about heat treating for hardness and using a process like black nitride or DLC for hardness and decreased wear? Black nitrided barrel
Bores have proven well for high volume high velocity projectiles.
