Re: Round count in a .308
My gunsmith is an old guy, who's been smithing for 50+ years. And barrel life got brought up last time, just in general conversation....And he said that the average person will not notice the difference in accuracy between 100 rounds and 10,000 rounds in a .308 Win. He said he has (in the past) had 700 customs he built that had over 10,000 rounds on a good quality barrel that he still shot 1K competitions with, and won. Just keep them clean, take care of it, and don't overheat it, and it should last you a lifetime, if you shoot occasionally.
