Barrel gets hot after one shot?

Im using a 7mm Remington mag
OAL 3.280 Remington Brass
154 gr. soft point hornady interlock's
GM215M Large Magnum Primers
Hodgdon Hybrid 100 V powder

It groups well, ten minutes in between shots. One shot, at a time. If I take three in a row, they are scattered, on the board. Any suggestions, if it is my primers or too much powder?

Sounds like a really thin barrel. Look at it this way though, at least you know your cold bore shots are going to be dead on.

And or possibly a bedding concern, is your barrel free floated....

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history
