Barrel Taper and Muzzle Dia. ?

After hunting season I am going to rebarrel my Rem. 700 with a 30 inch Hart tube in either .338 RUM or the .338 Edge.
What taper and muzzle dia. are most of you guys using for your LRH rifle.
I am going to put a muscle break on it.
Thanks
Tarey

    With a 30" tube you are going to need some beef. I wouldn't go less than a 7 contour. You might consider a straight taper in say a NBRSA Hunter. It would be a little heavier overall than the 7 contour, but not at the muzzle.........Rich

    Gnergy,
    You will want it fluted to save on the weight, If it were me I would go with something that you can actually carry up a mountain if need be . Maybe some of the edge owners will chime in . Call Hart and ask them what is the most popular style of barrel for the .338 EDGE they usually keep some of that info on file

    I'm going with a fluted, 30" finished, medium Palma profile from Rock Creek for a 338 AX. I was told not to go any lighter than this for this lenth tube, but weight is a big issue for the type of hunting I do, so there was perhaps a bit of a compromise in this barrel. We'll see how much in a few months...
