What is the difference between ChroMoly Vanadium Steel and traditional steels?

Most modern barrel steels are a ChroMoly Vanadium steel alloy that contains elements such as chromium, nickel, molybdenum etc for strength and hardness properties and are not as prone to oxidation or rusting as milder steel alloys. Milder steel alloys can rust within a matter of minutes or hours while the harder steel alloys will take longer but as long as proper maintenance is done such as cleaning and oiling the barrels they can last many years without any signs of rusting. If not properly maintained they can have rusting occur which causes pitting in the steel.
