Hart makes the finest button rifled barrels in the world. No worries. There is NO CON when it comes to Hart barrels. I have many, as well as some Liljas, which are excellent. You may want to consider a bit bigger contour and maybe flute it though. My 6.5-284 has a Bartlein and is basically a #3.5 contour. Muzzle diameter is around .650-.675.
