After having a fun day setting the world record for the longest rifle shot, we reached out to tacomHQ to thank them for building such an incredible barrel. We shot 69 shots in just under 5 hours, and the barrel never got hot. tacomHQ asked that we conduct a field test under conditions more like those faced by King of the 2 Mile (Ko2M) competitors.
Our testing goal was 15 rounds of .416 Barrett with about 40 second intervals. The full video of all testing is below.
