Regardless there were only two days I pushed the 25-06 on hot days that probably caused the fire cracking and they consisted of about 20 shot rapid fire sessions where I didn't let the barrel cool down between shots and smoked the barrel.... Atleast that's what the gunsmith told me did it.... So it doesn't take much according to him.... So yah as you said rapid succession....
I guess the OP would be the one to ask.... What was the total round count on the barrel?
You may be right, I may have read it wrong. I didn't account for load work up, just the 15 shots......
........."The rifle is a 700 remington, pacnor 26 inch barrel, trued, oversized threads sleeved bolt, and a few other things.
I got the rifle last winter and worked up a load 81 gr R-25 with a 100gr nosler e-tip. it is loaded .090 off the lands and around 3850 fps. All was good. It put 15 shots into a 1 inch square at 100 yards.
A bit more than 15 but how many more?? Sixty four dollar question and it may, in fact be uchered.
Sort of like my hunting rifles. I never expect to shoot out a barrel because they get a load worked up and they sit until needed. Now my 223's get the bejesus shot out of them.
