Just playin. Do you think It would be possible to just get Two rifles that would fit your scenario and do an actual hands on test . Say shoot a 15 round string out of a fat barrel .308 and 15 rounds out of a skinny barrel .308 . Then use some sort of temperature device to check and see which one cools the fastest . You could even test to see how much longer in reality it takes the fat barrel to reach the same temp as the skinny barrel. Just an Ideah from an ole hill billy
Big Buck, Isothermic is a term that backcountry skiers, snowmobilers and such learn in regards to snow pack structure and potential avalanche conditions. most avalanches are the mass slide variety which happens when one layer breaks loose and slides down over another layer. Isothermic snow is a good thing because the layers become fused into one snow pack, reducing the probability of an avalanche
I think your idea is a great one, unfortunately I don't have heavy and light barreled rifles of the same cartridge. now if some one want to donate a lightweight 25-06 to the cause, I would most graciously accept it
I have shot my 300 WSM
Finnlight and 300 RUM Sendero together on occasion and my subjective view was/is the Sendero was easier to keep cool under similar rates of fire and it's a more overbore rifle that the WSM. No stop watches, temp sensors, etc., though, so not very scientific.
