So I guess if your easy on them one could expect the higher side of those figures.
You should. Just avoid max weight bullets and max loads and the barrel life should not be a problem.

I've only ever myself burned out one and the truth is I just liked shooting the damned thing too much. I just cut it off and rechambered it and put another couple of thousand through it.

One of these days I'll just send it off to Krieger and put a light varmint contour 24" barrel on it so I'll have plenty of room to do it all again. With the .204 there really doesn't seem to be any advantage to barrels longer than 20". I've shot prarie dog sized targets with it (one shot kills) out to 600yds and that's about as good as it gets with bullets that small.

    Off subject (kind of), but can you see why we don't really have to worry about being "invaded" by another Country, during a war? With all of us non military "Snipers" scattered through just about every State in OUR Country, the invaders would retreat in a hurry after watching their comrades being dumped from 1500 yards and in!!! LMAO. Keep up the good fight, and keep building those tack drivers, Brothers and Sisters!!

    What was it that Japanese Admiral/General said? Something like "it would be a mistake to invade the mainland U.S. As you would be facing a rifle behind every blade of grass"

    Yep, but as many Japanese lived and were educated in the US prior to the war in all likelihood that too figured into their thinking. If it didn't the Alaskan Scouts who handed them their asses in the Aleutians definitely convinced them.

    Not bogus. The quote was taken directly from a Russian defector and was part of the basic education of every new recruit to the Army for decades.
