    Unless unless you are very fast, the cleaning time will allow the barrel to cool between each shot.

    When you go to 3 shots fired the barrel will heat up and you need to let it cool back to at least
    just warm to the touch.

    5 shots will take a little longer to cool but dont get in a hurry, break in is done to enhance the
    performance and is very important.

    I allways take another rifle to shoot while breaking in a barrel to allow the new barrel time
    enough to cool.
