    I shoot a 6x284 winchester My load is 54.5 WXR behind 87gr Hornady V-Max 26" BBL MV is about 3550 FPS. What kind of BBl life can I expect? Oh ya twist is 1 in 10 in a heart BBL.I shoot naked bullets.Would I have longer BBL life with another BBL manufacturer?Also I bet 500 rnds so far thru this BBL with just about consistant 1/2 inch groups at 100 yds.
