What length barrel would you sugest? I was thinking of a 28" barrel for either the .340 Weatherby or .338 RUM. Would you go for cromemolly or would you opt for stainless?
Stay with the same profile because with the smaller bore the barrel will be stiff and
As to the length , 26 to 28" will be enough in a carry gun ( A 28" blank will clean up
at around 27 3/8" and save money.
Also go with the select match stainless barrel ( They are not that much more expensive
and they are lapped making them less prone to fouling )
