Barrel: Not Varmint, Not Sporter.. #5? Light Palma?
Want to get a lighter barrel to replace my 1" thick 26" straight taper bench barrel, something I can still use at the range and won't overheat, but something that is still portable yet get good velocity, maybe 24" long. I've been looking at all the barrel maker sites and seems like maybe something in a #4, #5 or a light/med palma may work. I know all the makers are a little different, but just looking to cut some weight.
Problem is looking at the numbers I'm having a hard time visualizing what they are going to look like. Does anyone have a #4, #5 or light, medium palma barrel setup they could post a few pics of? This would be a big help. I hate tossing out $500 for a barrel not knowing how it's going to look.
