Is it considered to be one of the quieter Breaks? Thanks for thi info and take care.
I sure like it, I never even think of ear protection shooting the .260. I've got my 7mm STW in getting an "inspection" right now to decide if I'll leave it in it's current configuration for now or go ahead and start on the rebuild custom. I'll be putting a Shrewd on it as well.
I'm debating right now but I may try the PRI on the new M70 300 win. It's a design I really like but haven't tried yet. Like the Shrewd it's priced right so even if I don't love it, I haven't lost much.
If you want to go longer then I'd suggest 26" and something like the Coyote or Sendero Taper as they just look "right" and perform very well. I won't waste my time or money any more on a whippy barrel in anything I intend to shoot over 500yds. Why buy more aggravation, right?
You might see if you can just order one of the coyote light stocks or look at one of the kevlar/composite blends that are on the market and that will offset the additional barrel weight.
