After 3000 rounds you may lose enough accuracy to make a difference in benchrest shooting, but for a hunting rifle you you will probably never notice any difference in accuracy for at least double that if you don't overheat your barrel or ruin it with improper cleaning.

I consider the Marlin a best buy in a budget gun. Remington is offering 700 ADL's now for around $350 which I would have to consider. I like the Marlin better, but the Stevens 200 sells for about the same price and is offered in many more chamberings than the Marlin.
