Personally,I think the 26 Nosler will be a shortly lived cartridge,as are a lot of wildcats. For a hunting rifle,it will have a good life,for a rifle that serves as a target/hunting rifle,you better have a few new barrels setting in the corner for it. You will probably be changing them out at least once a year.
Shooters of the 6.5-284 can tell you how short a life they have with their barrels,and this screamer will only be worse.
