I'm wondering does anyone have a temp. they feel is the max they would let their barrel see in continued fire. I have a new Rem VSS in .308 bull barrel no flutes that I bought for match/varmit shooting. I have a thermal temp gun and thought I'd use that to know when to quit if I had a temp for a referance. BTW My gun loves the Barnes 175 Match Burners 210GM 43.5 Varget @ 2.98 COL one ragged .75 hole at 200 10 shots if I can do my job! Thanks for any help!!!
