Any issues with this?
No need for batteries.
I was shooting a Winchester 94 once, then was ready to dog walk. It was still uncomfortably hot in the hand. I opened the action and poured water down the bore, shook it out, then went for my walk.
What Rifle ? There is purpose made stuff out there.
I'm cheap and don't want to pay a lot or order it online.
Somebody on the internet says to use a chilled bore snake.
There is a different blower, bright yellow to serve as an empty chamber indicator for formal target shooting.
I saw one of these for the first time at my club just the other day. They were being used at a bench rest match.
Perhaps in an extreme situation. I question if sporting grade guns can shoot enough to get that hot, or not without other issues like cook-offs.
The comment reminded me of this, regarding Vickers water cooled machine guns
It looks like each barrel essentially fired 10,000 rds in rotation with 9 other barrels per gun.
Slow down, shooting is fun, enjoy the time. Take a break, have a cold Mt. dew back from the bench. Watch your friends shoot poorly or well. Do not put your soda on the bench.
My deer hunting rounds I want perfected with a cool/cold bore.
If you are a hunter or a sniper, you must know where the first cold barrel shot goes. Cold and clean, cold and foul, you must test. Take other guns to shoot or other stuff to do.
If you are a target shooter, you usually get sighters to warm and foul the barrel and get to a stable condition and zero. Then it must stay the same for the rest of the match.
I have shot F class where I have 20 or 30 minutes maximum for 20 shots after sighters. And we usually shoot faster to try to stay at the same wind conditions. So my rifle must shoot well when hot.
that the barrel glowed red. I kept shooting until told to stop.
A captain was in charge that night and when the night was
finished he chose two of us to shoot up all the ammo so we
wouldn't have to properly stow it. We shot while the rest of
the platoon loaded clips. Really fun stuff.
Things go better in November and on through spring.
my savage regular barrel with about 6-7 rounds of varmint ammo got too hot to touch yesterday with a outside temp above 90 degrees.
