keeping your pressures back and actually watching barrel heat a bit will do more for barrel life then powder choice will usually. Look up the 204 ruger if you want to see what dropping the pressure will do for barrel life. They were able to roughly double barrel life by dropping the pressure to 58000 psi or so instead of 6400-65000 psi like normal high pressure rounds use.
If I'm out knocking off prarie rodents, I'll bring both my striker pistol in 22-250 and my 25wssm rifle. I used to bring out my striker in 243 out too, but the barrel got tired and I traded it. It keeps the barrel a lot cooler if i can alternate between the guns.
