Most barrel makers use 416R which has less sulfur than 416 and a little molybdenum.

For sure. READ THE LABEL!
I have not seen WW 9x23 Largo (Spanish version of 9mm Bergman Bayard.)

The actual SAAMI drawing does indeed show that back bevel at 35 deg + 20 deg, so anything 35-55 is spec.
However, the extractor groove bevel is shown at 26 deg Basic with no tolerance.
