Nick, the powder heat index plays a role too. Hotter burning powders cause faster wear rates than cooler ones. A guy on Accurate Shooter forum modified my formula to make a correction:

The above link mentions some benchrest barrels are considered worn out when they no longer shoot groups in the ones; under 2/10ths inch/MOA at 100 yards. Yet several-group aggregate records include some groups larger than 2/10ths inch. His standard could mean no groups in the ones are no longer shot regardless of the largest one's size.

Here's a different approach:
