We are often asked the question "how long will your barrels last?", "What is your barrel life?", or "How long will I shoot at sub MOA?" All of these are great questions! Unfortunately, the answer is difficult to formally specify as its subject to long list of variables.
Since there is no detailed military specification on how to test "barrel life" commonly between companies, we do not formally rate the life of a barrel.
Perhaps the biggest question is "Will my barrel last (X) rounds?". We typically answer this with a question of
"What is considered End-of-Life for the barrel?" For some customers, this is when the barrel loses its base accuracy. For others, it's when the barrel starts keyholing or failing to stabilize the bullet.
Outside of the end-of-life, a large number of variables play into total "barrel life"
However, we are highly confident that the barrel will meet your needs. As such, we make the following statement:
"Faxon barrels will have the same barrel life as all other high-quality barrels with similar composition and treatments."
