16" ----- .635"

Re: Barrel length advice.

That almost exactly what I'm getting on this Remington barrel. It's 20 inches, with a 1.25-5x Leupold in Weaver rings/bases.

Just stepped off the scale, and it surprised me at 8.5lbs as is.

It's been awhile since I tried to get ultralight, might be tougher than I remember.
