Re: 264 Win Mag and Barrel Life

How do you know if your barrel is worn out?

[/ QUOTE ]

Because the accuracy goes down to an unacceptable level. Some velocity may be lost.

Do you lose accuracy, velocity, or both?

[/ QUOTE ]

Sorta both... but what you really loose is accuracy.

When a barrel is worn out can you hack off some barrel and re-chamber to clean up the throat or is the whole barrel length worn out?

[/ QUOTE ]

Just cut a little off of the chamber end, and rechamber it... the rifling does not wear out. It's the throat that burns out.

"Wears out" is not a clear description of what happens.
