What's the life expectancy of a shotgun barrel, say a Mossberg 590? How many rounds?

It will last longer than the receiver. I have known some high volume Trapshooters with several 100,000 rounds through a single barrel with no wear.

It will more than likely last your lifetime with normal use.

Unless you use it as a crow bar, blow it up with an obstruction, run over it with a car or leave it out in the weather I will bet you cannot afford the ammo to wear it out.

Better shotguns can go for a million rounds.
