1.325v is the listed max threshold for voltage on that CPU. A "stock" E6300 will not use anywhere near that much voltage in it's normal day to day operations, even if placed under full load.
If you want to see what a normal E6300 would run at, set all your BIOS options to default and run one of the more accurate monitoring software suites and look at what readings you get for Vcore at idle, 50% and full load. My guess is under full load you may see it use about 1.2v.
Now, granted, the CPU will actually need less power than the BIOS will give it on AUTO (this is one of the reasons you never overclock on AUTO) but this expirement will show you what a "stock" E6300 would be running at as "stock" generally refers to a basic system for the average end user with no BIOS changes.
However, your assumption is fairly accurate that at the voltage you are using you would get comparable life out of your E6300 as a "stock" system as you are within the Intel listed voltage guidelines.
