If it were me, 28", fluted, sendoro or varmint taper. Shorter would be OK but if you get a 8 twist for those matrix vld 180s, I think you'd want the 28" for as was said the slow powders.

Re: pros vs cons of extra long barrel 270 wsm

At 100 yards, it shoots 3 rounds into the same hole. Most of the time. Looks similar at 200. I have shot around 400 rounds of this load at 1000 yards. I'm shooting at a steel cut out of a prairie dog, and normally hit at least 3 out of 5 shots. Reading wind, and mirage is definitely an acquired skill...

It seems to like 162 amax better than anything else, but shoots Sierra 160 game kings pretty good too. Berger 168grn were on par at 1000, but not as tight closer.

I have a stainless Tikka T3 in 270 wsm. I shoot 140 gr bergers at 3300 fps. I have a 4x16x50 pst Viper on it , and have shot it out to 600 yards. It only shoots about 1 moa at that distance but it a sporter weight barrel, and one of my treestand guns.
