Re: Question about rifle barrels.
I been shooting this whole week and when I get done shooting the barrel is heated up like I mentioned. Its still accurate but I did notice that the accuracy goes down towards the very last few shots. I wanted to also say the .308 Im talking about doesnt have a bull barrel but instead just a regular barrel. I guess no long term accuracy loss will happen but Im going to let it cool down anyways so I keep accurate shots instead of wasting shots by them flying in other places of the target. I never shot over 20 rounds in less than 30 minutes with a centerfire rifle and I mainly shoot around 10 shots in about 10 minutes with my .223 and new .308 . Even with the bull barrel that my .223s have the barrels still get hot till where you cant keep your hand on them.
