Cooling the barrel

None of the above. They're hot when the oil starts to smoke off of the barrel. I've only had a couple guns that hot in my lifetime. But you can always take a second rifle to switch to. I just leave the bolts open between shots. But mostly once you pull the trigger it will be a few minutes before anything sticks its head out again giving you plenty of time to cool down.
I've read about folks running tubes of water thru the bores, ice packs, etc. How do you guys keep your barrels cool during a vermint hunt or extended range session in the heat?

I would have said that but I didn't know we had a creek nearby. A lake, pond, river or stream works too!
I just toss it in the creek. Only takes a few seconds to cool it off and it's ready to go again..Walt

I've only been to Cedarville once, but that was not my experience. You/ve seen the video, many times there were so many buggers out there it was hard to decide which one to shoot first!

I think you left a 0 out! I have close to 10,000 rounds through my Savage Model 12 BVSS and it's still shooting 1/4 inch groups. But you're right the barrels are cheap and pretty easy to change once you break the nut loose the first time. I put some never seize on my barrel nut so next time I won't feel like I'm breaking the gun when loosening the nut.
Buy a Savage!!! then when you shoot out the barrel you just get another one for $125, screw it on and put another 2000 rounds thru it. Repeat as necessary.

By the time I get through that barrel of of .223 brass that barrel will be throwing bullets end over end.
Not a bad start!!
