I an looking at a remington varmint 007 contour and at 28" with no muzzy break at this time and will be for hunting more than anything but for some steel too. I will be running retumbo with 180 gr berger vld with a 1-9 twist. Now im thinking of maybe going 30" that if i do want a muzzy on it. From what i see some smiths will cut a 1" to 1.5" and add a break and some dont cut and just thread and screw a muzzy on. What do you all think. Is 30" too much for my thinking? I have not even looked into breaks as it not really priority now. But maybe in future. Thanks fellas a and keep the brotherhood rollin.
The only down side to the 30" barrel is if you are trying to carry the rifle in heavy cover.
Do yourself a favor and get them to leave it full diameter at the breech end an extra inch or so and that way if you shoot it out you can just cut it off and set it back a time or two.
Add a Snowy Mountain Rifles Muzzle brake
and you'll be in love with the whole thing.
