    Replacement barrels

    I was wondering if you fired a semi-auto 9mm round into a tank of water and replaced the barrel with a replacement barrel from Wolf or other and refired the same gun into a tank of water would the riffling marks be the same? It is my understanding that two bullets fired from the same gun would have same marks on the bullet, but what happens if you replace the barrel?

    Also I am sure that the marks made fromt he firing pin on the brass should be the same.

    Each barrel will have it's own characteristic, also the more a gun is fired the characteristic will change, due to wear on the barrel. Marks from the firing pin will also change over time, due to the wear on it.

    The marks on the bullets will be different. The marks on the head of the brass will be the same. Any marks left on the sides of the brass should be different along with the exact size of the fired brass.
