Best Barrel for .375 CheyTac?

All,
I am looking at having a .375 CheyTac built and I am pondering barrels. I don't want to be married to a single load. I want to be able to load the solid projectiles and hit steel at 2000 yards, but I also want to be able to turn around and put in a low priced SMK (or the like) and engage targets/large game from 1000 in. Suggestions?

A 10 twist will handle the SMK and the CE 350 gr but will not work too well with the longer heavier solids. You will have to decide if you want to go fast with less BC or slower with higher BC. Inside 2000 yds the 10 twist and associated bullets would be my pick.

Augustus,
Thanks for your input. So, what would an 11 twist do with an SMK, or the like, at moderate ranges of, say, 1000 yards?

The 350 SMK will work fine in an 11 twist.
