Those are strong and durable rifles. In my ignorant youth I got a Remington US M1917, with a severely corroded barrel. It would grind a .35 cal bore brush to .25 cal in a couple passes. Black tip armor piercing ammo was cheap and plentiful at the time, so I shot thousands of rounds of the stuff thru it. I noticed that on a hot day I would have to beat the bolt open with a rock or something, thought that was a little odd, but kept shooting. Eventually the headspace opened up too much and I stopped using it. It would still reliably hit tin cans at 100 yards. About 30 years later I found a replacement barrel and had the old tube replaced. Needless to say, the gunsmith examined the action thouroughly, and declared it sound and unaffected. THE BARREL HAD STRETCHED with the stress of thousands of unyelding bullets driven at obscene pressure down that rough, eaten and corroded pipe. With the new two groove barrel it hits right to the same point as the old barrel, and holds 1.5 inch groups with any prime, medium or scrap ammo I shoot through it.
