I don't think any 30 caliber magnum barrel will shoot no worse than 5 inches at 1000 yards for even 400 shots. For anyone to claim 1500 plus would require a stretch beyond the breaking point for my mind to agree with.
The most accurate benchrest barrels shoot 7 or so inches at 1000 yards. I'm talking about the group size all their aimed shots will go into in the best conditions, not those rare 5-shot ones well under 2 inches that happen maybe once in a barrel's lifetime.
Broz, are you not posting the Broughton barrel life quoted 'cause you think Tim North will tell your Mommy on you?
