For me I donít really consider a new barrel broke in until Iíve got a thousand rounds in - ok thatís perhaps an Exaggeration - but seriously a barrel with a thousand rounds is like new.

Itís your money but like I said let me know where your leftovers are going as I bet they are better than anything I am shooting.
I shoot 4000-5000 rounds a year in high power matches and practice. Usually right around that mark, 600 yard accuracy starts to drop off pretty quickly, when you start with a cut rifle barrel. Button barrels only give about 3000 rounds of 600 yard accuracy.

Most competitive service rifle shooters use the same benchmarks. We shoot a lot of rounds, half of them in rapid fire strings, and barrels get replaced every season.

I do sell the used ones. Usually about 100 bucks. And they still hammer at 200 yards.
