Why? The barrel has the same shape and metalurgy for every shot fired; it doesn't change. And heat doesn't change that until the barrel melts into a liquid.
I keep hearing that from people talking about the wssm cartridges too. The thing is supposed to be a total pile of #### from what the rumor mill says and factory ammo certainly isn't stellar, but I've got three different loads from mild to wild that will hold 1/4 to1/2 moa.

Such a 30 caliber barrel will weigh 8.97 pounds and have a resonant frequency of 21.87 Hz as it whips like a fishing pole held by the angler's hand; lots at the muzzle but little if any at its breech end held in the receiver. Each and every time, indeed.

Any answer to my question about what harmonic resonance is, or is that a secret that only those of your ilk are privelidged to know?

Re: 300WIN Velocity

Its obviously the sound frequency a given material puts off when moved, hit, pinged, something goes through it or over it, by it etc... most commenly measured in hz. With variances in steel from lot to lot I can almost bet your reply of 21.87hz is inaccurate. The more resonance it has the harder it is to tune, so much pain in the ***** to gain what? 22 and 6mm PPc arugably the most accurate rounds in the world, optimal record setting barrel lengths of 22", not 34". You say you can not change the properties of the steel without melting it, I call BS, the more "harmonics" it has the more everything around the barrel, temp, pressure, etc.. effect it, also if you shoot at night or own a bore scope you can see that you are indeed melting your barrel little by little, around 22-2400 degrees melts stainless, your igniting a 27-2800 degree bomb in the throat every time you send one down range. Get a overbore magnum like a 257wby for example with a sporter barrel, shoot it 10 times in 90 seconds at night time and watch the chamber glow, do it again in the day time and watch your groups go all to hell. I guess you still think a copper jacketed piece of lead moving at any rate from 1k to 5kfps is what's wearing out your barrels. Finally since most of us arent perfect except maybe you, who can obviously get an ES and SD of 0, cannot get every round to be "perfect" and act like a trained monkey, we stick to what's easier. Good day.

The natural frequency a barrel (or even a barreled action) by itself rings at when struck is much higher than the natural (resonant) frequncy a barrel has when one end's fixed by being threaded into a receiver; called fixed-end resonance. It's that fixed end resonance of a barrel that gives its muzzle the greatest angular motion at low frequencies. And its only a fraction of the higher frequency one hears when smacking a barrel with a hammer.

If you don't understand and realize this, you need to learn a few things about tube vibration.

Re: 300WIN Velocity

I've seen barrels from 10-28" long perform well. What you feed it matters a lot more than the barrel length. Shorter barrels are easier to get shooting, but the bullet liking how it's pushed down the barrel is more important. Much like I can whoop on most people playing chess but don't care a bit about position numbers and barely care the piece names, I really do not care a bit about the harmonic resonance of the barrel as long as I can tune enough of a null as the bullet leaves for accuracy.
The 300 win has got to almost be loosing velocity by 34". I had a pressure gauge on my last 7stw for a time, and at 26" the pressure was already down to 12,000 psi or so, and the 300 win is a bit less overbore. It should be closer to 10K psi at 26".

Re: 300WIN Velocity

It doesn't matter that much to me either, I just do not care for wise a$$es. Especially someone who thinks they are are the only one who knows physics, sound speed in 416R is a constant at 13,333 mph, which in his tiny brain tells him that it has a constant frequency, which it does, if it is dormant and nothing ever changes. Oh, and don't give me that $hit about it will weigh 8.97 pounds, you have no idea how it will be shouldered, threaded, contoured, or crowned, therefore no idea what it will actually weigh until its done and weighed. Its also possible for a human to actually hear 21.87hz, after that then you break it down in to its molecular construction which varies from one maker to another. The only thing I see you're good at is reading someone elses theories and using math to come up with a pathetic argument, when I think you should do some more reading on resonance, hertz, and wavelengths and see how they are effected by size and shape. Lefty your right most of my buddies that shoot IBS use 28" barrels for 300wm and wby, , the one I learned the most from had a 28" barrel chambered in 30x284, it wasn't enough, he had it set back and rechambered in 300wm and it finished at 25.75", only shot the 210 berger at 2780, but his grandson won 4 or 5 1k junior championships, and to this day will still print 3.5" groups at 1000yrds.

I agree about what a barrel's fed means more that its length. I've shot the same load in barrels from 22 through 32 inches and twists from 1:11 to 1:13 and it performed well. 'Course the shorter ones didn't keep 168's from the .308 Win. case supersonic past 900 yards, but through 800 accuracy was excellent. I've wore out my share of 28 and 30 inch barrels with .264 Win. Mag, two 30 caliber magnums and .308 Win. winning my share of the matches. Only worked up a load for the .264 and just used the loads other top competitors used in the 30 caliber ones. All were tack drivers.

I doubt a .300 WM will start loosing velocity at 34 inches. Not when my 32 inch .308 Win. barrels shoot 155's out at 3120 fps. The .300 may well need several more inches before velocity starts dropping.
