remove the bolt and stand it upright for five minutes , this should help it cool quickly. Remember that sighting in in warm weather will change the point of impact slightly in cold weather. I some times bring a flexible ice pack and run it up and down the barrel in the summer to cool the barrel if I don't have a lot of time. The 6mm is very close to the 22-250 in pressures and is a great long range varmit gun , but I would use it on deer if the right shot presented itself. I know from reading previous posts that some people do not agree but thats ok with me.

Hi mack and welcome to the site.
You don't mention what kind of Winchester you have so can we assume it is a Model 70?

Mack,
Karl has some great suggestions, there is a lot of difference between shotgun and rifle just take your time and don't overwhelm yourself. It will come along.

The 22-250 has dropped many a deer here in Texas, regardless what others may think about it being "big" enough for hunting big(ger) game. I used 6mm Remington 100 grain Core-Lokt with great success this year. 2 rounds = 2 deer in the freezer. Yes, the shots presented themselves nicely.

Thank you for the suggestion about removing the bolt while walking around. It's something I really hadn't thought about. The ice??? That would be for running over my forehead, if/when I'm (stupid enough to be) out there in Aug or Sep again.

I guess it's all about taking your time when out on the range, and not trying to get in a hurry between shots. Will have to remember all of these great tips when heading back to the range. (or maybe I'd better just write them down now and stuff them in my ammo box, I suffer terribly from that CRS disease, you know . . . . . . . . Can't Remember Shhtuff.)

a guy i know was having a small issue with the group not being as tight as he would have liked. the gun was pretty new to him if i remember right. anyway i said let me chamber the rounds. so i put in a live one and the next, without him knowing, i put in a spent casing. that showed where the issue was. after that cutting dimes. oh i failed to mention it was a 300 win mag.

Try a .22 rimfire for fun

I just was reading about the fun bleeding behind magnums and I had another thought. We are talking about shooting tight groups and relaxing behind our rifles. The easiest way to relax and have fun is behind a 22 rimfire rifle. With the total lack of recoil, shooting at either 25 or 50 yards is just a matter of watching the crosshairs as we lightly press on the trigger. I think all of us would benefit from more time behind a scoped 22 rimfire rifle.
