300WM Barrel Shot Out

300WM Remington 700 Sendero Barrel Shot Out?
300WM Remington 700 Sendero Barrel Shot Out?

Doc has been suspicious for over a year that his 300WM’s barrel is shot out. 

  • The rifle: Remington 700 Sendero.
  • Years owned: 22.
  • Rounds fired: 1410. 
  • Caliber: 300WM. 

How can he tell? The rifle used to shoot 1/2MOA with his hand-loads. But over time, that has degraded. Not dramatically, but consistently. No big deal really. 

But over the past year or so, he has noticed a new phenomena: He is shooting for groups and can call his shots. And every once in a whole a called shot will act as a flyer. An erratic flyer at that. 

So what’s going on? 1410 rounds is quite a bit through a target focused, accurized 300WM. And before a barrel completely falls apart, it will show unexplained flyers just like this. 

As he see things, he has two options: pull the barrel and have it turned down a thread or two? And fight it? Or just replace the barrel. He has decided to order a new barrel and will shoot this one until it comes in. Month or two I believe. 

Additionally, he is getting his first suppressor (at aged 73) and really needs a threaded barrel anyway. So….kill two birds with one stone as they say. 

Have you ever legit shot out a barrel? Let us know about it in the comment section.
