My Remy 700 in 243 loves Federal 100gr rounds, but now Bushwear is having problems getting any stock, so, I've moved to Winchester 100 grainers.
Now, I was out this morning at the "range" having a wee check of the zero...and shot my last 2 rounds of Feds at the target to compare with the Winnies...Feds were spot on,as were the Winnies,....tho, they did sound a good bit louder. BUT, when I felt the barrel and the mod, both were VERY hot, much hotter than it normally is with Feds. They were so hot, I could barely touch them...and that was with only 6 Winnie and 2 Fed rounds fired through...
Is this normal with Winnies?? Any thoughts on this would be greatfully received...I don't want to do any untoward damage to the barrel or the mod if a change to yet another make would halt this.
Thanks in advance guys..
