I have read posts where people talk about barrels being shot out after so many thousand rounds, but can anybody tell me the life expectancy of the action?
Just on first principles of mechanical wear if non "hot-load" like a .308 barrel will last 5000 rounds how many times could the action be re-barreled? How many cycles should an action be expected to perform?
I understand "it all depends on how well the gun is maintained" but given reasonable care and attention....
I have a slight bias towards information relating to Sako 75/85 and Blaser actions but any info would be good.
