Depending on the barrel material, loads, care, space between shots ect... You can expect between 700-1000 rounds of solid accurate shots.

Yes it can vary greatly. It is similar to the 300 RUM in the barrel lif department.

I know guys who have barrels that are "shot out" yet still kill game at long range with them. If a .25 MOA rifle gets to the point where it can only hold 1 MOA it is "shot out" yet is still a very capable rifle. Shot out is a subjective term.

My answer to this is. The only reason is to make the 7 RM look good. There is no other reason.
