    What kind of a round count are you getting with this set up? Looking into possibly building one but what a caliber that is worth doing and not going to cook out rather quickly.

    I am in the process of building essentially the same thing (7mm 375 Ruger). I think as a hunting round, it should last pretty well. For a paper puncher getting regular range time, not so much. I am thinking somewhere in the range of 1500 rounds will be about the limit for barrel life - at least to the standard of accuracy I look for.
