Of all the things I don't want protesting me, a rifle barrel has got to be close to the top.

Dave Petzel wrote a good article about barrel life in an old issue of Field and Stream. The central point was it depended on how hot a load you were putting through the barrel and whether you allowed the barrel to cool between shots. I'll go dig out the issue and give you the year and month.
