I will rebarrel my Rem 700 in 300WM but are a little unsure what lenght, twist and contour I should chose. It will be a Lothar Walther barrels since they are
easy to obtain here in Sweden and for a good price, and they usually shoot great.
The stock barrel are thin and only 24" long. I want a little heavier barrel (Varmint or match profile), Ill hunt with 180 - 210 gr bullets.
I need to decide fast since I will order a new stock this week and will have it inletted for the comming barrel.
Here can you see the different contours from Lothar Walther
Right now I think this one would be a fair compromise in weight and dimension. Maybe with 6 flutes on it, but what lenght?
Contour #3100: Light Weight Target
ØD1 = 0.750"
ØD2 = 1.000"
ØD3 = 1.200"
L1 = 3.0"
L2 = 7.0"
L3 = 26" or 28"
