Hollow drill steels and carbon content?

Recommended Posts

So, I have several old drill steels laying around, I've made anvil tools and such from them, but I have various short ends in the scrap pile. They seem to harden nicely. Any idea whay kind of steel they are? I've tried searching through google, without any luck. I was wondering about the contrast with 5160 or steel from some old jack hammer bits if I were to weld them up for pattern welding.
