Myself I'm not at all disapointed with the barrel life on my 22-250, many many rounds and 10 years it still shoots better than me.
I have a buddy that tells me I tend to overthink things, and as I think about it, I agree. hahahaha
I am figuring I could probably make a 22-250 last quite a few years. I will never be using it for target shooting so it will be strictly a practice/coyote/PD rifle, so I think it will probably be alright. Although, I will say, I do like to push the envelope on velocity, but that can be played with a little more once I buy the gun. hahaha I am guessing it will probably be fine though.
