Re: .270 wsm barrel life?
Have you tried cutting back the chamber on the old barrel and re-throating? How many rounds did you have down the barrel of the original caliber?
To both of you,
I think you will find that your barrel life will increase with a quality barrel. I have read alot about guys getting better life when you get a lapped barrel from a quality maker. Keep this post going. My brother is interested in a 270WSM for his boy. I would like to see the results and quality of shooting. I just wish they would make a quality bullet. I think the 270 is an under rated caliber.
