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.

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