I wish I could find what I want with out having to get into the custom price range. All I really want is a .30-06 with the same barrel profile as my .308
A 24" inch barrel that is .820 at the muzzle for me is a perfect balance between stability and weight. its light enough to hump the hills with and heavy enough to take some of the thump out.
Not to mention that my .223 my .308 and my .30-06 when its finished will all weigh the same, handle the same and feel the same.
.308 Howa 1500, varmint supreme. 24" .820 barrel, Roedale precision brake.
.223 Howa 1500, varmint supreme, 24" .820 barrel.
