5 Creedmoor burns a smaller powder charge, match-level barrel accuracy life
will be longer than with the larger 6.
26 Nosier and 7mm Ultra Mag come to mind) in a light to medium-heavy barrel, three shots is usually plenty if maximum accuracy life
The accuracy life
of a normal high power bore is less than a tenth that of the average rimfire bore.
Shockey claimed the roller slowed down the slide, reduced the twisting action of the gun during recoil, and prolonged the accuracy life
of the pistol.
XLC is Barnes' proprietary process similar to moly which claims to have the same benefits -- decreased friction (thus slower heat build-up) longer accuracy life
for a barrel and less frequent cleaning intervals.
That all translates into increased dimensional stability and longer accuracy life
They reduce friction, increase barrel and accuracy life
, reduce fouling, and make a bore easier to clean when it does need it - which ain't often
A bore guide is cheap insurance that a barrel's accuracy life
isn't cut short by rod abrasion in the throat area.
Basically what MD coating offers is a 3 percent or more increase in velocity because of less bore friction, greatly increased accuracy life
for barrels, more uniform velocities, an 8 to 10 percent gain in accuracy, and easier cleaning because fouling is greatly reduced.
While few hunting rifles are ever "shot out," the extended accuracy life
that stainless barrel offers is nonetheless powerful selling point.
