So obviously you are talking multiple guns and calibers for all those matches. Maybe that was causing the confusion.
Yes; the rifle I qualified on was a M1 in 3006 that had over 75,000 rounds.
My personal rifle that I shot High Power with was a Remington 40 x range master in the beginning
and later I restocked it for a better fit for all positions. I fitted the hand made stock with an adjustable but plate for standing , siting and prone. For the Creedmore shoot we rested the barrel
on our foot laying backwards (Feet first to the targets) and holding our heads up with our free hand
The 308 was not ideal for this match but it was surprising how well it did.
I realize it is no longer bench rest quality but it will still shoot 1/2 MOA groups.
The point to this was that some rifles shoot out barrels very fast others will last a lifetime
with good to reasonable accuracy.
