Re: Contour and barrel length suggestions for 7mm RemMag

I would go with a # 5 or #6 Lilja contour (NOT strait taper) with a 24''minimum
and a 26'' Max length barrel non fluted.

Log on to Lilja's web site and look at the difference in the barrel weights from #3,s
to #6,s There is only 1 pound difference!! and like Magman said doint hang a 3 or 4
lb scope on it if weight is that much of an issue.

Most of my rifles weigh 10 to 12 lbs and thats not to heavy to carry plus
the steady you down when you are out of breath and dont have the best
rest available.

Just my opinion
