It has been a long since I worked with PE gun barrels, I recall 
something about heating the metal first makes rolling it easier. Where I 
forget is do you dip the piece in water to cool it rapidly or just let 
it cool naturally. The word annealed comes to mind, but which method of 
cooling it applies to escapes me. A lot escapes me these days, memories 
are headed over the barbed wire fence like Steve McQueen on a stolen 
German motorcycle.
