Hammer forged barrels..test shows how heat effects barrels

Rifle shooters have been trying to figure out a way to mitigate the effects of heat for decades, and for good reason. Heat destroys barrels.

Pushing hot, burning gas down the bore causes the steel around it to rapidly transition between solid and liquid states. It melts a little bit each time the rifle fires. The portion of the barrel that is most vulnerable and sustains the most rapid wear is the first couple inches of rifling just in front of the cartridge’s case mouth.

If you need to shoot a lot and shoot fast, don’t pick cartridges with high case volume and small calibers. Pushing lots of powder down a tiny hole is the most damaging combination for heat-­induced wear. If the shooting sport or hunting scenario you participate in requires such a cartridge or creates the need for rapid fire, barrel selection becomes profoundly important.
