    I have recently added a 7mm RUM to my library and was wondering what some of you have seen as far as barrel life out of it. I will be handloading 168 gr VLD's and will not push it over the edge. I know it is not very long, but what should I expect??? Thanks!

    It has about the same life expectancy as Hillary Clinton at an NRA banquet.

    Probably around 1000rnds if you take good care of it and try not to get her really hot. It should last you a long time if you are smart with the gun and just use it for a little practice and hunting. if you use it as a long range varmint rifle like i have done with some it wont last very long.
