So, I'm at the range for the first time in a long Rainy Coastal Winter Stretch,....
Can't restrain myself, got to get rid of some loads,...so as I get into the third set of twenty
I'm having to wait an awful lot for the barrel to cool quite a bit,...
and you know how that goes,....waiting less and less each time,...wondering how it is affecting my results on the paper
So, what methods, tactics do you guys use to wait,...between sets ??
How long, how many rounds,... how Hot can the barrel be before it has a negative effect on your grouping ??
I've heard all kinds of things,..."as long as it not too hot to touch,"....stuff like that
but I'm wondering if you have a way of thinking,....like no more than 6 or 10 rounds without a long wait to cool,...
I did have a .22 rifle along,...but got all focused on results I needed to get into more reloading,...so I didn't really want to spend a bunch of time plinking
wanted to get through a bunch of loads with this one rifle,...so, can you relate ??
(and yeah, i've searched around, not much detail on the subject in the archives here) Any Help Appreciated
is a Sako 85, Stainless Barrel, .270wsm,...was using up H4831sc and RL-17 loads
just noting that as it seems the RL-17 may actually heat up faster than the 4831sc loads,....??
and No, I'm not Maxing anything out,...upper 1/3 of the Min to Max range tho all day
