The Model 70 is my favorite rifle. The ones I have are reliable, accurate, and look good just setting there. :)

I have never shot one enough to need a barrel change. Mine are as accurate today as when I bought them. Just treat them good, keep them clean inside and out and they will serve you a lifetime.

I only have one Mod 70........its in .30/06 and I bought it about 28 years ago. Great rifle.......excellent accuracy. I'm glad they are making it again, I just hope they make them like they used to.

tiko joe,

There is no easy answer to your question. The Winchester M70 is a very good design. I had several LR Match rifles built using the M70 action. How a particular M70 will shoot is the luck of the draw, as it is with any mass produced rifle. The number of rounds before a barrel change is more a factor of what cartridge the rifle is chambered in, and how the rifle was shot and taken care of.

Was issued a heavy barreled one in early Nam as a Sniper rifle. It
served very well with the exception of the outside finish did not
last. Original Lyman Alaskan scope was replaced with a Redfield.

I bought a new pre 64 for my own in a Featherweight version in
1962. This one after free floating the stock would produce inch and
an eigth ten shot groups at 100 yards using 180 grain Sierras with a
case full of 483l.

You would have to fire many thousands of rounds before you would
notice a drop off in accuracy. I am only familiar with the pre 64, model
70 Winchesters

We should all be so lucky as to actually shoot the barrel out of a rifle.

I have a late 60's m70 featherweight xtr in 30-06, my favorite rifle and it sure is purdy to boot. It shoots at or under 1" at a hundred all day long.
