BREAKING NEWS: Gun barrels get hot AF... Learn More
First, lets address the fact that it doesn’t take much to heat up your gun barrel. As seen in this video we have a M&P-15 shooting .556 NATO at a little faster than 1 round a sec. You can see the Flare Mini™ begins to change color after about 22 rounds fired. Shooting an AK47 only took 6 rounds.
Most rifles are tough and engineered to handle rough elements. However, a hot barrel can cause bullet drift reducing accuracy. It can cause harm to you, others, or your equipment. Nothing like melting your rifle bag all over your barrel.
So it goes a little something like this: It’s a hot summer day out at the range and you have been shooting intermittently with a friend and now its time to pack up. IS IT HOT? you might touch it and hope it’s not.. you might just forget to check and store your rifle in that new gun bag. Both options might end badly. There are a lot of variables play into how fast and how hot your gun barrel will get. For example the barrel diameter, caliber, weather conditions, rate of fire, rifle quality, etc. STOP GUESSING, put a Flare™ on it.
