Barrel suggestion for 300 WSM

I have a Tikka T3 in 300 WSM. It has a 21" barrel. I want to change it to a 24 or 26. What barrels and twist do you recommend?

Thanks

    IMO I don't think there is anything wrong with goin shorter on the barrel. The 24" is long enough to be efficient and makes your gun more handy a long stick. short barrels = stiffness.

    As for twist of the barrel that will depend on bullet selection... I love bergers and therefore if you choose to go that way just look up on bergers website and pick which bullet and they have the recommended twist rate there

    I'd say Bartlein #3 5r in a 1:10 twist. Grizzly has them in stock. This would be the ideal sporter barrel at 24" for a 300 WSM
