Last week I got out to the range---in January, in Nebraska---and passed the 1300 round mark with no lubrication on the bolt carrier or upper.
There isn't even a rub mark on the parts.

The EOTech, which I am growing to "not hate", hit a spraypaint can at 50 yards, the gong at 200 yards and the gong at 300 yards without any adjustment. Just a little hold under/hold over. Maybe I'll keep it.

The 1 in 9 has fired 55, 62, 68 and 75 grain with no stabilisation problems.

The rifle has cycled---Honduran tumbled ammunition, dirty Twin Cities 1967* ball, Winchester, Fiocchi, Hornady, PPU, Lake City, WCC, Remington, Radway Green, MAL and TZZ with equal aplomb.

I cannot explain why I love this rifle---but then, I don't have to.

*The 1967 TW was loaded when I was 16 years old.

Thank you for sharing your findings. I just bumped pasted the 1600 mark. Oldest I have shot was TW71, hasn't missed a beat yet. Maybe I got lucky, but this rifle is doing just fine in my eyes.
