Nice rifle but out of my price range.

I have one in .243. They come with a floated barrel.
The only reason you would have your groups grow with extended shooting is due to the barrel heating up. They are a great deer gun, if you are going to shoot a lot of rounds with out giving the barrel a chance to cool down, your groups will grow.

Can any negative effects, aside from grouping, happen from shooting with a hot barrel? I let it cool down but any info would be good to know.

I know that these particular rifles do come floated. But I have seen a few of them that the stock was so warped that it was already hitting the bottom of the barrel. Just watch them when you buy them is all.
