In slow fire, which is almost a given with a Model 1917 bolt action, the barrel can be expected to last at least 5000 rounds, maybe twice that with moderate power hunting ammo. The bolt/receiver will last a lot longer.

In other words, Nathan, you can do what you want with the rifle, but I don't think you can use a worn out barrel as an excuse.
