Can anyone tell me what the barrel life of a 6.5-284 is?
about 1100 rounds of top accuracy and then it starts to fall off. This is of course with relatively good barrel care. Shooting lots of fast strings and overheating your barrel will cause it to go faster.
The majority of the wear is that the throat area. Some people cut down their barrel 1 inch and re chamber it every 800 rounds or so. I guess the rifling is the last part to go on the barrel.
