Re: Convince me: 300Win vs 300RUM
You are correct in part. The bigger powder charge does cause more errosion, but not quite as fast as leaving it in the barrel longer. The offset isnt much, I was just being technichal. A barrel burner is a barrel burner!
On a side note, ball powders will also allow slightly less errosion as well.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
