I can't see how conditions there are much different than where I am. Altus is 140ft physical, hot as shit all summer and humid most of the year. We do get fairly cool to cold in the winter, though, but I don't think it's any different for most of Texas.When do you pull your barrel for a set back? A specific amount of speed loss? Or just when you feel it’s time based on the barrel?
And have to agree it’s something down here. Have had two 6cm burn out at ~1100 rnds. Only using factory hornady 108 around 3025 and the fire cracking was so bad a set back didn’t help. Been scratching my head trying to figure out how people are getting 1500-2k on a barrel.
Hoping the next few are at least able to be set back. I didn’t clean much if at all for the past couple. Going to do some mild cleaning after matches and see if that helps a bit.
Edit: I'll add that my current one is the first to be cleaned regularly, as it actually starts to foul out after ~300 rounds. Previous barrels would be cleaned every 500-700 rounds when I chickened out before a match.
