DOM or Pipe Barrels

JEH:
I acquired a nice Ken Netting Type G trade gun a few months back. The 45" barrel has a weld seam full length on the inside. I assume he machined the profile from a piece of DOM tubing. Anyone have any experience with these? Are they safe to shoot with the relatively low BP pressures.

We all know what pipe is but what is DOM??

D.O.M. Means drawn over mandrill. My cannon is 1126 dom and stands up to 500 grains of cannon powder and a 1.06 pound lead ball. I proof tested with 800 grains of 1fg and a two pound slug.
This tube has no discernible weld.

Ken used a lot of these. So far, so good. Iíve got one in the corner of the shop; havenít used it yet. Very nicely profiled.

JEH:
Thanks for the replies. When I was a kid I used to make cannons out of 3/4" gas pipe. I guess surviving that made the age and wisdom kick in.
