I would say he probably has as much first hand experience with a 300 win barrel than anyone I know.

I have no reason to doubt Broughton, but my barrels have never lived as long as they claim.

I have to put that down to my impatience (I do clean carefully and with the best of equipment), but every once in a while when shooting at steel my horns come out?

Ringing steel is like crack for the soul!
Can't....help...myself!

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?

I do not shoot 5 or 10 shot groups. I am no bench rest shooter I am a hunter and why I quoted long range hunting accuracy. I can tell you this, the 300 win I shoot now is the most accurate I have owned with 215 Bergers. I am approaching 1000 rounds and it will indeed shoot 1/2 moa on average. I have not changed seating depth, with either the 210 load I started with or the copied seating depth of the 215 load. In good conditions a shot outside 1/2 moa from point of aim is rare with good dope.

Bart, I will kindly ask you to use respect when addressing my mother. She has long past and she deserves it.

Jeff
