    i'm fairly new to this and i am getting curious. i have put a ton of rounds through my guns current barrel and i know the man who owned it before me used it alot as well and i was wondering if there was a way to tell when u need to get a new barrel? my handloads are pretty hot, about 3580, but i don't know how to tell how the rifling is holding up. any help will be appreciated!!

    How's the accuracy? If it still shoots to your satisfaction, why would you rebarrel.
