Default .22-250 "Barrel Burner"

Im getting ready to purchase a predator rifle, I have narrowed my findings down to .223 or .22-250. While doing a boat load of research, my findings are making me lean towards the .22-250. The only thing I have not found an answer for, what is the estimated number of rounds through the barrel of a .22-250 before it needs replacing. 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 ran into the same exact issue, as far as choosing the .223 or 22-250. Unless you are going to shoot the gun everyday and put a lot of rounds through it in a short period of time go with the 22-250. I purchased a TC venture, camo stock and love the gun!!!
