What I'm wondering is what is the contour on all three rifle barrels and what are the diameters at the action and the muzzle and which one would you guys choose for a future custom rifle build?
I called and asked about barrels a while back and as I recall the finished diameter on the fluted barrels is .720 or .75, about the same as the Lilja #5.

The sporter barrel on my M-70 ss 300 win is .620.

I'd imagine the fluted bbl is going to be the same as the first because they aren't doing any fluted bbls that I'm aware in the .620's.

You can always try to find it on their site or give up and call like I did.

If you get the extreme weather, there no need to change the stock. It comes with a bell and carlson.

What would I have to do besides rechambering in order to fit a 338 Norma in the model 70 338 win mag?
