Savage F/TR build in 6BR, How many shots in one day?

Just finishing my 6BR norma Savage with 105's and wanted to know if anyone has shot this caliber all day Prairia Dog shooting. Did you hold up ok after 300-400 shots?
I use a 22-250, 22-250 A.I. and 22-243 A.I. normally and just wanted to try out the 6BR.
Using the Savage F/TR rifle with a SSS 6mmBR Norma barrel with 1-8.

We built the LRPV savage in 6mmBR norma with 1-12 twist and it shoots 3's at 200 yds with 87 grs. But we only shot 50 times or so.

I think your 6BR may turn into your favorite p-dog gun. I set mine up with a Stolle action and Krieger barrel with a muzzle brake. Really hard to beat with no recoil, exceptionally long barrel life and the ability to watch the round all the way downrange to vaporize the little guys. As far as 3-400 a day ... no problem. I'm compulsive about not overheating barrels, so I switch out with a 6AI and a 220 Swift, but have hit the 500 round mark many days with the BR.

Great Reachnout!

We have shot 700 rounds best to date in one long day in SD. No cool down no cleaning just shooting with 2 guns. In KS in 2009 my brother and I got 585 rounds each in one day and then we were both done. We never cool down the 22-250's just my 22-243 A.I. with 1-9 twist and 75 gr A-Max bullets cranking out 3500 to 3700 fps. Depends on day temps on which loads I use for it............
