Just removed barrel #1 from competition 6x47Lapua. 750rds then a new throat cut,then 500rds and accuracy just started to taper off.Waiting for new tube.It was a bartlien 1 in 8 twist.All loads were between 38grs - 39grs of H-4350.

Wow, got 1100 roudns down mine and it still shoots inside of .25moa. Using 38.5gr H4350.

Wow!! That is certainly NOT good news. I'm on 500 rounds with mine (Border 1 in 8). Using it mostly for hunting, but it has done a fair bit of F-Class shooting. I was hoping for at least 1500 rounds??
Someone told me the Border barrels lasts longer than most others??
Can we have more responses on this one, we need to see who's shooting what kind of barrel, and hopefully some shooters doing much better?

I had a 6XC shooting 38grs of H4350 with the 105s and at 1800rds I had it rechambered to a 6mmSuperX and it now has close to 3000rds through it. It was still shooting great at 1800rds but I wanted more poop for the 115s so went the 6mmSuperX route.
I am now rebarreling it but it was still shooting around .5moa at 600yds. It just wasn't doing as well as I thought it should at 800 to 1000yds.

so where are we now with this topic. The last reply surely sounds like the most realistic, I would imagine that you should get well over 2000 easily, even with competition shooting only?? There must be more shooters out there who are close to shot out with their first barrels, can we get more opinions/experiences please?
