Is the 6mm creed a barrel burner?
Is there a barrel life expectancy?
That depends a lot on how it’s shot and how fast. Shooting 105+ weight bullets at 3200fps in PRS style matches will cut your barrel life. That’s what a lot of guys did in its early life as matches where different then and it gave the 6 Creed it’s barrel burning rep. Guys were burning out barrels in 1000 rounds. Running it at lower velocity will add to barrel life. Keeping it in the 2900-3000 area will bump life up close to 1800-2000 rounds. Barrel life is similar to the .243 when shot the same way.
