2000 plus i acually am going to put a 25 or a 25.5 on it it will be a hunting and target gun, another thing i have read about these really long barrels out in the 30s is that the wear out very fast du to heat and lack of carbon as lubricant, the seals shoot a 26.5 and the most accuret per weight barrel is said to be a 27inch.

A cartridge that burns 90 plus grains of powder with a26" or shorter barrel has a bit too much muzzle balst for me. A much more sedate creature with a 30" barrel. That is what I have and I would not want it shorter

Mine 338 LM weighs about 13 pound scope and all
