    Nice guide. But what is the temperature that is considered to be TOO hot or where one should stop shooting and allow for a cool down. I have not run across a scale that gives these temps. (yet)
    Also are these temps (wherever they are given) allow for barrel diameter?
    I've never done it but I would be surprised if 140° could not be reached just sitting on the bench in the hot June-July sun without being shot.

    The link provided as I read it, merely tells you when your barrel reaches 140°.....is that considered the point to stop?

    No, it merely tells you your barrel is very hot. 140 degree outside barrel temp is almost too hot to touch. That means the inside bore temperature is around 300+ degrees F. That is very hot for a barrel and if shot many times up to this temperature, will no doubt decrease barrel life and most likely reduce accuracy.

    On my F-Class rifle with a 1.25" diameter straight barrel, I have just gotten it to below 140 degrees F in a 25 shot string during a 1,000 yard relay. Stuck Barrelcool in it under a shaded firing line and 20 minutes later, it was back to near ambient (only the 86 and 95 degree markers were lit up).

    How often do you have to replace these ?

    You do not have to replace them once they are on, unless it is damaged.

    I have one of these on every one of my barrels (AR's, F-Class, etc.) and they are great for keeping an eye on temps. During competitions (service rifle, F-Open) my barrels get up around 131deg after 22-25 rounds. Toss in a barrel cool and by the time I get back from my turn in the pits and it is ready for the next string.

    During practice I try to keep my barrels from going over the 122deg line which usually equates to a sustained one shot every 1-2min.

    Anybody checked these out with an IR temp gun, just to see how accurate they are?

    I started using these strips many years ago.Before that I was told if I couldn't keep my hand on the barrel for 5 seconds it was too hot to shoot. It was hard to stop when 50 prairie dogs were standing on their mounds barking at you. Burned my hand a few times in the process.

    Use them out in the Pdog fields . They work well. Gets to the 122 mark and in the shade the rifle goes and out comes another. 2-3 gun rotation works well.
