    I have ran a search and found a response indicating around 1200 rounds for barrel life for this cartridge. does this sound about right? this would be a defensive edge built rifle with a hart barrel.

    I think I've heard that before as well. Probably be quickest just to give Shawn a call and ask directly though.

    Just do not let the barrel get hot by rapid firing and all should be maximized. Also break the barrel in correctly. It is also important to clean the barrel properly.
