Mountain Rifle: 3-Shots ... Cool Down ... Repeat

Realistically, for a mountain or ultralight rifle.
It's 3-shots ... then, a cool-down.
Before another 3-shot string.
Otherwise, poi may be shifting.

The object is to set a cold barrel zero.
Then verify the poi of one-shot from a cold barrel.

All of this for that all important single shot of the day
that will be from a stone cold barrel.
This is the price that you pay for a lightweight pencil barrel.

If you're planning on practicing a lot,
a medium contour barrel would make a much better choice.
