One year of shooting statistics
It's been exactly a year since I first started using a 6.5 Creedmoor barrel in the Remington 700 multicaliber system. What are the statistics of this barrel and the system? Here's a summary and a couple of numbers...
This is the Remington 700 system I've already introduced. For the first time I shot from this barrel on November 14, 2017 and it was a "break-in" (24 rounds). Then I made 159 shots to test and search for the optimal ammo setup. Since then I have been shooting only reloaded ammo of one type and I have not changed anything in their preparation.
Total number of shots - 1712
Number of individual shooting events - 48
Minimum number of shots in an event - 9 (training)
The maximum number of shots in an event - 90 (a big tactical 3 days competition. Due to health problems I did not clean in it during match)
The average number of shots in an event – 35.7
Of course after each shooting I do the cleaning of the weapon. First of all I'm not a pig. Our cleaning and maintenance system really works so we can rely on the cold bore shot...
Number of competitions – 24
Medal Placement – 9
Minimum temperature - 4 ° C
Maximum temperature + 29 ° C
Shooting in the Czech Republic - 29
Shooting Abroad - 19
Except the competitions I measure the muzzle speed continuously at each shooting session. At the beginning the muzzle velocity was 875 m/s at 20°C. After one year it dropped to 855 m/s at the same temperature with the same ammo. This reduction in speed is due to wear on the barrel.
The expected lifetime for competition shooting should be approximately 2200-2500 shots.
Shooting statistics are greatly suited for evaluating and preparing for further shooting. Most of the behavior of the barrel can be noticed which is important in the Long Range... Writing a shooting log can help a lot and it is really useful.
