Barrel Contour-Length Question
Looking to build a 300wsm using a Kreiger barrel. Plan to include a Holland brake. This gun will be used 95% at a 1000 yd range; however, I want it to be a practical hunting rig, for any type western hunting trip. Was planning to go with a No. 3 contour (should result in about 8 lbs bare rig). Should I consider a heavier barrel and would a 26-inch barrel with the brake be too long? All opinions welcome. Thanks
