Re: Round count in a .308

I just bought a rem 700 VS, 26" with around 200 rounds on it. It looks just like a sendero, same stock and all. Can't wait for it to come, sounds like it will last. The guy ony shot 100 grain TAP ammo at varmints with it. He said it shot great. Kinda light for what I want to shoot it with. Any load ideas from someone that owns one?

Re: Round count in a .308

A gunsmith friend of my dad's always told me that if I ever shot out a .308 barrel to put it on a wooden plaque and mount it on the wall next to my antler mounts....cause it would be a trophy to be proud of!

I think I've read of military tests where they put something like 20,000 rounds through their chrome lined 7.62x51 nato M14 rifles during testing to see how long the barrels would last.
