    I know of a BRNO .375 that has over 8000 rounds through it with no problems at all. A hunting friend of mine uses a BRNO that belonged to his grandfather... My CZ 550 has over 2500 rounds through the tube and it's only getting better. Most guys can't afford to 'burn' a .375 barrel, what with ammo costing what it does today. If you keep it clean and let it cool properly between shots, you'll probably be able to will it to your grandson.

    My .375 Parker Hale has shot many thousands of rounds through it! Still shoots good and straight! I suppose it depends on that particular barrel... I wouldn't worry about it too much! They're cheap enough!
