A lot of talk about 2000 rd barrel life.
I have only shot Hornady varmint ammunition 50gr moly in this rifle since new. It liked it so I bought a pile of it in the late 90's, 4500 rounds, gave a couple hundred to a buddy on a PD shoot in AZ. and I have a couple hundred left. The factory loaded ammo might have gain me some or the moly who knows?? I know the barrel owes me nothing. When I shoot up this ammo I'll re-barrel, maybe a 20 wildcat???
This gun might not print well on paper, I haven't checked. But I was misting juveniles at 200yds, plenty good for me.
I would just shoot it, if it goes south it goes south. Re-barrel then.
