    Possible to quench in water also due to the very low amount of Cr 0.3%

    Minimum quantity 200kg??? 441lbs??? Sheez.

    Blom, the first thing to look at would be the Manganese count, which is .4%. That's sort of on the border between water/oil quench. I would use an interrupted brine/oil quench on this steel. If I didn't have to by a quarter ton of it.
