My main go to pistol is a Kimber clissic stainless gold match, 7 or 8 years old. I work from a large tub of federal brass, which I used to keep track of how many loading was on them, I quit countin after 8 loadings, that was 4 years ago. Still using same brass. My estimate would be 18 to 20 thousand rounds through the gun. Last year I noticed the rifleing wearing away in front of the chamber and switch to lead bullets to prolong the barrel life. I will admit that accuracy is suffering with jacketed bullets, but the 200 grain swc going around 750 fpt a still the bomb. I can nail an aluminun can at 30 paces more times than not. Not to long ago, I took a friend shooting, just for fun, we backed up about 80 yards and was ringing a 18 inch square steel target. From that distance, you would squeze the trigger, wait a second, think you missed, and the hear the ring.

Don't know total rounds, way up in the thoudands, but here is what a group of friends did one day:
Loaded two Beta Mag drums with 100 rounds with Lake City green tips. Fired the two drums back to back through a pre ban Colt Hbar. Got so hot the front of the carry strap melted off.

Let rifle set up for an hour to cool down a little. Reloaded a standard 30 round mag and fired at a 9" paper plate at 200 yards. Every single round hit the plate. A cleaning and bore inspection the next day showed no damage.
Give me a Colt Hbar any day.

100,000 rounds have passed through my browning buckmark and it still is just as much fun as it was the first time I shot it. :mrgreen:

I had well upwards of 50K rounds though my Commander when I finally retired it in favor of a Glock.

I have about 3K through my Colt M1991A1, 2k through my Norinco SKS, and 1,500 through both my AR15 and XD-40. Not nearly enough though any of them if you ask me.

i wore out and extrator cause i was using wolf.

but alot of that was with a conversion barrel. the extractor quit running 9mm but would run 40 flalwessly.

i wore out a locking block too, but i was using a solid guide rod and full power 40s and the service model doesnt work well with that combo. beats the hell out of it.

if you have a 40 i have a converison barrel brand new for sale in the trade section

I would easily buy one of those again. 50k rounds is a good amount.
