Re: No body believes me.

Iron Worker,
I too believe you. I had a 7Mag Sendero with over 1200rds of mostly max loads. The majority of the time it still shot .2-.3's with 150gn Ballistic Tips. It was a bear to clean, as the first 12" of the barrel were extremely rough from heat cracks and erosion. I enjoyed the accuracy but knew it was just a short matter of time before it crapped out for good. JohnnyK.

    So did it finally "Crap" out on you? Did it go all of a sudden? .2-3's one minute next ? I was told when a barrel is officially shot out it happens quickly.

    No, I traded it in on a used 700P in 7mmRM with a low round count (80rds). Although it's not as accurate as the Sendero was it is alot easier to clean! JohnnyK.

    I think that most long range shooters get the feeling that people think we are lying now and again. I believe. I have a 6x47 lapua with nearly 3000 rounds down range that would still shoot 1/4 MOA. I thought it looked bad until I looked down a buddies 6x47 with 700 rounds through it. His looked worse than mine despite the relatively low count. I pulled the barrel and have it sitting on top of my safe, but probably should have shot it until it crapped out. I am learning that the 6x47 which I initially thought was fairly easy on barrels is not that easy on them. I just had an exceptional barrel the first time around.

    This has been helpful. I have two barrel burners 6x284 and a 22-250 AI Both are shooting to my expectations and both have throat erosion. Its easily $600 bucks for new Barrels with these tough economic times I can't be blowing my dough on frivolous items.
