The hardness of 60 Plus® C1060 material is 60 to 65 on the Rockwell C scale.
The hardness of 50 Plus® 440C material is 50 to 55C on the Rockwell C scale.
Yes, in order to harden this grade of stainless steel there needs to be some iron content which is magnetic.
The standard tolerances are +/- 1/32″ on the 1/4″ through 1-1/4″, +/- 1/16″ on 1-3/8″ through 2″, and +/- 1/8″ on 2-1/2″ and 3″. Tighter tolerances can be maintained at additional cost.
No. A file is about 70 Rockwell C scale for the hardness. 10 points is a big difference and will scratch case hardened steel.
Only if you are familiar with the required machining operations. It can be difficult if you are not. The Lee 60 Plus® shafting offers the highest machine-ability in case hardened steel.
