Normally the accuracy falls off but copper fouling can also cause that.
Barrel life depends on how well you clean it, how fast the velocity if and how much the cartridge
is over bored.
Stainless barrels seem to have better barrel life than chrome Molly and any good stainless barrel
should give you good life based on the above conditions.
If your velocities are below 3000 ft/sec you will get many years of use from it. and as the velocity
goes up the barrel life goes down normally.
