I'M WORKING ON A PART MADE FROM AMS6360 4130 CR TUBING.
IT HAS A HARDNESS CALLOUT OF HR30T 76-81.5 .
TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE THIS IS AN ANNEALED CONDITION.
THE PART GETS NICKEL PLATED PER AMS 2404 THEN BAKED AT 375 F. FOR 3 HRS.
FIRST QUESTION IS , IS HR30T 76-81.5 AN ANNEALED CONDITION?
SECOND WHY WOULD IT HAVE TO BE IN THIS CONDITION,IF IN THE END WITH THE NICKEL IT REACH ROCKWELL C 65-70

... Because the nickle or chrome is only, please excuse the expression, "skin deep". Often we want a hard or slick outer surface while we retain a different "substrate" material underneath for properties it provides for the project. Does that help?

(Do you realize that posting in all capitals is considered as shouting out your question?)

Thanks for your answer Randy,and no I didn't realize that posting in all capitals would be offensive to readers.
