    Welcome, glad to have you here. Lots of good folks and lots of good info. I agree with what others have said about the 7mm rum. I would shot as often as you like, enjoy and not worry about burning out the barrel. Barrels are relatively cheap in the scheme of things so just get another. If everytime I drive a vette (no I don't own one) I had to worry about putting more miles on it then I ought to buy an Olds. Enjoy.

    I am likeing my howa 1500 varmit in a 308 win. 55grs. Varget pushing 155gr.hornady a-max.
    We shoot from 200 to 500 yard comp. Bench rest. I sight in at 200 yards using a leupold 6.5-20x40 target scope. I have found that a-max for the buck is the most accurate. Have fun!!! Chaz
