I have sent it back to Christensen. They informed me that the gun smith that built my gun back in 2008 was fired and now works for Huskemaw scopes in Cody WY. They said that they would figure out the problem and make it right... I commend them for standing behind their name.
My concern is exactly what HAWK has said. 200 rounds? I understand that if you hype these 190gn. Berger's 3200+fps its gonna take a toll on barrel life, but 200 rounds? I am not exactly sold on the whole Carbon fiber thing anyways. It seems as though it would help retain heat v.s. help dissipate it? Isn't Carbon fiber an insulator?
