Sometimes there are thing that make you go HMMM?? I was asked a question the other day and it has me going HMMM?? Maybe you got something there. Here it is... When you do your load development do you let your barrel completely cool ? What if it is a load you are working on for tournament shooting when you have "x" number of rounds to fire in a set time period? Do you think that it would be better to shoot your rounds for load development the same as you would for a shoot with a set time limit where your barrel is going to heat up anyway and shoot a higher number of rounds at each powder charge? What do you think?
