    Tempering Curve for 5160

    Since google isn't helping me much, does anyone have a chart of the tempering curve for 5160? I know it is at 58/59HRC if you temper at 350 farenheit, but what is the temperature it takes to get it down to 57HRC? I think 56 HRC is about 450 or 475, but Im not sure. Thanks a ton for the help guys!

    Darn! Maybe the search function would have done the trick. Thanks a ton, that looks just like what I needed.

    This is the info on 5160 from the Heat Treaters' Guide. They show a tempering diagram for 5155, but not 5160. However, the two should be about the same.
