I have read about the Accumark not being accurate because of the freebore will I was at the 100 yard two weeks ago and I had two shots in one hole. Also about the barrel being worn out very quick, well I might have a responce to that. How many shots are you taking before you actually stop? If you heat it up too much you wear out the steel. Because it gets so hot. I highly dout that velocity is wearing out the barrel, if you were to ask me I would say that people are taking too many rounds before they stop. I would never take more than three shots until my barrel cools down. My barrel has had a lot of rounds through it and it will have a lot more through it and my barrel looks just fine. Just so you know only I'm 17, but I really like the outsoors and shooting. You can tell me to shutup when ever you want if I say something stupid. Thank You for all the info you guys have given me and I hope to see more.
