How plausible is it to have a 26+ barrel on a Mcmillan A-5 possible mag fed. rifle to and still take it to 1000 plus and staying under that 2 grand bill??
I have a custom built krieger/mcmillan/surgeon/timney 243. I do 1k easy with a 22 IN. 1:8. why do you require such a long barrel? benchrest?
Also, i wouldn't ditch the sps. you'll need the action. just send it to krieger and they'll fix you up with whatever you want.
better order the stock a month before the barreling job....like today if possible
