Sorry to resurrect a somewhat old thread , but l didn't wanna make a new thread unnecessarily. Does anyone know the Barrel life of a .375 H&H Winchester Model 70 ? I have a pre war model which which my great granddad got in '38 or '39 and passed it on to my Granddad , who gifted it to me. It's fired over a thousand rounds ( from Kynoch round nose 300 grain solids in my Grandfather's days to Norma modern loads ) . It works as accurate as ever . Has anyone here actually shot out the barrel of their .375 Model 70 ? I was reading Finn Aagard's son's online article which implied that Finn's model 70 in .375 needed a barrel change after 2000 shots.
