I have read all over and been told by many sources that it will eat the barrel, but how fast, how many rounds??
depends on how you use it.
Rapid fire, you could butn a barrel in less than 1000 rounds.
Shoot slowly and allow the barrel to cool between shots, and it could last for 4-5 thousand rounds.
I didn't fight to defend your freedom so you could vote to take away mine.
