My 270 WSM burns barrels quickly

Need recommendations for a long range barrel that will allow me to practice and develope long range skills without having to be replaced as quickly as my 270 WSM or my 300 RUM.

    308, 260, even the old 270. They all have great barrel life

    260 or 308 for sure own one of each and would have a hard time deciding if I only could have one.

    What kind of barrel life are you seeing from that WSM?
