300WSM barrel build ?

Guys having a hard time trying to figure which barrel to go with on this build. I'll be shooting bullets from 185 to 230 grains so the twist will be a 1-10 just thinking should I go with a Schneider 4 at 25"s or a Barlein 3 heavy at 25"s(same as a Krieger#4 through Schneider). Which one would you go with and why??? Although time isn't the problem I can get a Schneider in 6-8 weeks or a Bartlein in 4-6 months.......thanks in advance!!!!

Re: 300WSM barrel build ?

I've really been wanting to try one of Schneider's Polygonal rifle barrels, so there's my vote

I have never heard anything bad about Schneider, if you can cut your wait time in half; Why not?

Also have to vote for the 1-10". Solid choice there, she'll handle almost anything you can stuff in there. I just put a 1-10" (Obermeyer) on a custom 300WM.

Yes leaning that way I hear good things about Gary's tubes as well.
