There are 4 strings of fire which are the basic building blocks of any NRA high power rifle course of fire or tournament.

1. Slow Fire, standing - 10 rounds at 200 yards in 10 minutes.
2. Rapid Fire, sitting or kneeling - 10 rounds at 200 yards in 60 seconds.
3. Rapid Fire, 10 rounds prone - 300 yards in 70 seconds.
4. Slow Fire, 10 rounds prone - 500 or 600 yards in 10 minutes.

As we can see by the NRA rapid high power strings of fire, 10 rounds in a minute are a standard part of the course. Have been for years and years.

When you talk about 10 shots making things red hot, throat erosion, etc you're way off of reality.
