Good evening all,
Ever since I got the new rifle, my first with a moderator, I find that the time it takes for the barrel to cool between shots has lengthened greatly... obviously due to the retained gasses in between the baffles.
I'm now starting to fire test batches of home loads and although there's no major effect on grouping by firing with warm/ hot barrels I try not to. Also - heat haze is distraction enough to not continue firing!
Does anyone on this forum have a system for zeroing the rifle with a load that doesn't take all day? Also, what are the effects of firing with warm barrels to the rifle?
