Ok, after a long wait, the thermal pics are here.
Ambient temperature is listed in one of the boxes and all temps are recorded along points of the barrel where the crosshairs are.
If you can't make out the numbers on the temp chart, say so and I will type them in.
So, from these pics, we can see that although I burn 20 grains more powder than the 300 win mag in pic #5 and I have already fired 5 more shots than the 300, my barrel never got hotter than 102 degrees farenheit and the 300 got up to over 150 degrees and stayed above 100 for 15 minutes!
The carbon barrel shot 8 aimed rounds as fast as I physically could and barely got above body temp. If you were to try this on a 70 degree day with a normal barreled 338 ultra mag, you would be able to cook a hot dog on the barrel!
Take a look at thermal image #4. It gives a readout on my neck as sp07 and shows it as 93 degrees. At sp06, my barrel is only 2 degrees hotter after 8 shots! That is amazing! Feel the back of your neck and that is roughly the temp of my barrel after 8 shots on a 74.1 degree day!
Proof the carbon wrap keeps things cooler to start and gets rid of accumulated heat 10 times faster than regular steel!
Can somebody please make a link of these pics to the thread I started called something like, "abs heat dissipation" in this subsection? THanks.
