heat is what kills barrels so thats more of why they are doing what they can to cool barrels between strings.
as you probably know in F-class when the flags drop its like 20 rounds of machine gun fire so those big bore barrels get hot fast especially when its 80-100deg and is also why they are changing barrels around a 1000 rounds.

im building a 6BR right now...it will be my tactical rifle so that i can try and get a little more barrel life out of my BRX...ive found over the last couple of years that using the same rifle for 3 different types of shooting kills barrels pretty quick and a few have gone prematurely.
