Picked up a beautiful REMINGTON 6mm need to spend some time on the range to determine best ammo and zero in. Will be starting with a CLEAN cold bore. Might need to run several rounds. Is it advisable to let the barrel cool down a bit after several shots? Will a hot barrel alter the accuracy significantly?

I typically don't shoot more than 5 rounds before letting it cool down. Hot barrel can effect accuracy. I'd definitely send some foulers too.

Best thing to do is just shoot it and find out its likes and dislikes, what it will tolerate and what it won't. Some rifles are more finicky than others.

I'm here to give and receive knowledge, not affirmation or adoration. If you don't like it, mierda dura. Intellectual honesty is not for fragile egos.

Do you know what twist rate the barrel has? That might help you find the right grain to start at up

deffinatly bring some different ammo brands and weights, I'm still testing my mvp and ive had it for 6 months. I try to wait a few minutes between shots and till barrel cools every 5 or so shots.
