Re: Barrel Life With "Barrel Burner" Calibers
How many rounds a year do you shoot? 20, 100, 500, 1000+?
If you shoot a box of shells (20 rounds) a year, at most, then ANY caliber will last a lifetime.
But if you factor in recreational shooting, comps, practice, reloading and developing different loads, etc... Then sure, barrel life will be drastically shorter in comparison to the guy who shoots 20 rounds a year.
And if you shoot 1000+ rounds a year, your barrels might last 2-3 years (depending on caliber). .308 Win would still last 10+ years.
