Average barrel life?

Hello and thank ya!
It's been a while and something got my attention that I hope you all can help me with.I found an article on M4 barrel erosion and in their test they where comparing the erosion rates of Tula,Wolf and Federal ammo. After 6,000 to 10,000 rounds their barrels where shot out. Now on the M4ergeries barrels can be swapped out fairly easily; clearly this does not apply to us.It had me thinking and a bit worried.So I ask you good folks: On average what is the average round count/barrel life for a chromed chamber Enfield barrel? should I keep the spare barrel or is it too much trouble to do so given the locking shoulders? In general I guess I am asking , without barrel swapping what is the average lifespan of an CAI(mostly Enfield parts) L1A1?
