from what i've read, and researched thanks to you guys, i'll stick with 300wm, and prob look into a 26-28in barrell with a good brake as well... agreed?
Fluting would normally be done before hand.

In my case, it was an afterthought.

Re: 300wm rechambering to????

thats good to know, i'm not stuck on fluting the barrell, but i do like the look and if it would help lighten it more than what has been mentioned, i'd def be looking into it.

but its cheaper and less likely to mess with the accuracy if i do not, so i think i'll be going that way!
