Re: Barrel life in the Rem Ultra Mags..

When ever I shoot one of my fast rifles 257 WBY MAG, 338 Rem ultra Mag or 300 WIN MAG I shoot 1 or maybe 2 rounds at the target then wait until the barrel cools to the point that its almost as it was before I started shooting. The reason I do this is because when hunting thats what I do automaticly and I don't shoot the rifling out of my rifle.
The barrels last better that way. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]
