Contour?

I'm in the wait time for a 338 LM build on a R700 action for hunting. We've settled on a 28" Broughton with 9.3 twist but no discussion on contour yet. Weight is a concern and I'm wondering how heavy the barrel needs to be?

Thanks

Jack

Re: Contour?

At that length, #5 is the smallest I would ever consider.
