Good info. I might add, to aide your barrel in cooling off faster, open the action and have the barrel pointed straight up in the air. It works like a chimney as hot air rises and cooler air is sucked into the action. I've noticed my barrels at the range cool off much faster than if I just laid them down in the case.
