284 win Barrel life

What would an average barrel life be of a 284 win shooting medium loads aka 2600-2700 fps with 160 grs. and also Long action for seating depth or Short action for size?

I would think enough to not worry about it. Go to 6mmbenchrest.com and go to the 7mm/284 page.

Re: 284 win Barrel life

Barrel life should be around 2000-2500 rounds, i am building one right now on a savage LA, the mag is long enough that i will be able to seat the 195 berger when it comes out so that the shank/boattail junction is above the neck/shoulder junction of the case and still be able to feed from the mag. Ive done a ton of research on this cartridge and feel that i know quite a bit about it so if you have any other questions go ahead and ask.
