Curious about something else..... You say that Heat plays a large factor..... I shoot often in -40 outdoor temps. Do you think that it might help my barrell life? I've shot 6400 through my Cooper 21 - 223 and it still pulls off .5 moa 5 shot groups @500 yds. Which I'm pretty happy with.
Your barrel will heat up in weather that cold depending on how fast you shoot it. You just need to monitor the barrel temperature. If you can touch it w/o it being uncomfortable on your skin, you'll be okay. If you grab the barrel and it feels like its burning your hand, your barrel is too hot and needs to cool down. As long as you can keep your barrel from getting too hot, then that helps in the longevity of the barrel life.
