Re: US 869 vs Temperature - A simple not quite scientific test

So how many rounds do you have down the tube now. Seems like you are really pouring the bullets through that barrel. I have only a round count of 38.

Hmmmm, lets see, about a 1/2 pound of corn meal, maybe 10 sheets of TP, 99 195s, 78 169s and 30 150gr Ballistic Tips and I think 3 135 SMKs. Oh, and the break in which was 20 shots or was it 25??? For a total of 197.
The number of shots will go down drastically as I've figured out the bummer of an eye thing and am back to right handed shooting and loads are worked up for the 169 and 150 gr bullets. I'll be really close when some 195s arrive also. I actually wasted the 99 195 weight bullets learning about case hardening and brittle fracture. I actually shot all of those 99 shots with between 62.3 and 95.7 gr of US-869. What a dumb idea that was, but it really worked well with the 222.
197 - 20 = 177 177/25 = 7 cleanings. BTW: Warthog cleans with fewer cleaning rod strokes if you're in a hurry. Otherwise Wipeout over night is even fewer strokes.
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!
