Muliemaster, im really interested in CA, does the graphite barrels seem to heat up, for ex. im a big shooting range guy, try to go often and spend about couple hours there. Would it heat up the barrel and lead to inaccuracy if i take some continuous shots? I've heard the carbon barrels help the barrel not get hot? i am unsure about the barrels. Thank you!

This is what I can tell u about barrel heat ob my carbon one custom. I never have had my barrel «hot enough that it becomes in accurate » I have shot the usual 5 to 10 shot groups with a short cooling time in between, I dont abuse my rifles. Christensen arms are very high quality built guns, its a long range hunting/ target rifle not a semi auto ar15, normal shooting does not heat up the barrel any worse than say shooting a 10 shot group from my win 70 in 300 win mag, to me the 300 is hot to the touch where the carbon fiber barrel is cool enough to hold

Oh ok, that comming from an experienced person like you is very helpful. i continuously shoot 15 round, with about 5-8 seconds between each round. and about a minute between every five rounds. would the Christensen rifle think that is abuse?

By they way I shoot my carbon one custom at least 3 times a week, as the range is built behind my house. I have fired now over 2000 rounds through it without one single issue as expected. But I shoot that 338 way more than most shoot their big bores. I love shootin it, recoil of a 30/06 but the power of a run away mack truck

Cool cheap target. Go to a dollar store by the dollar vases, fill with flour, tape the top shut, settle in, squeeze the triger watch the white cloud of the hit. Fun cheap targets

"In our tests, the rifle exhibited a definite tendency to shift its groups to the left as the barrel heated. While there was not a remarkable deterioration in accuracy, this group shifting was as much as 1.5 inches after ten shots. This 1.5-minute-of-angle deflection would translate to 6 inches of shift at 400 yards, more than enough to miss a prairie dog." I was wondering about that?

Thank you for the quick replies! Very fun to to talk to a person who knows what they are talkingabout!

Please note I neither state or belive im an expert on christensen arms, I am just a very hardcore hunter that hunts 90 days a year in 5 states plus africa, i love true value rifles such as my marlin xl7 an xs7, they are true accurate well made well priced rifles, but, an here I say it, they are not 800 to 1500 yard rifles. So I took a chance on the word of my brother, that has 3 christensen rifles an got one. The rifle is deadly accurate at very long range, the fit is perfect, an im a 100% believer in their craftsmanship
