I'm having accuracy issues with my 17HMR which I've started a thread about that already, but during my research I was told that an HMR has a lifespan of about 2000 rounds before the barrel is burnt out!
Due to the accuracy issues I've with this gun, the amount I go out bunny bashing, and the fact that I'm quite into paper-punching for hours after I've zeroed, I've probably easily done over 1000 rounds in the last 12 months...
Does anyone know if the 2000 rounds thing is true?
If so I'm definitely PX'ing mine in soon and will never by a s/h HMR!!!
