mo, if you can do the work yourself, and it's about a 9 twist, try it. If you set it back a couple of inches, the .284 will have a new throat, and you'll have a seasoned barrel that is a known shooter. If I had to pay someone to do it, and didn't need 1/8 moa, I would still use it and save the $300-$400 that a new blank will cost.
You can wear out a barrel, but 1200 rds of 7 Mag is not going to do it. The crown might be a little tired, though.
Hope it works out for you, Tom
On edit: If you decide not to use it, P/M me. I can always use a proven 7mm barrel.
