Re: Effect of barrel contour on long range accuracy?
Hart #4 Fluted.
Id have gone with a lighter weight, smaller contour, but I wanted to reach out there & the #4 contour (fluted for weight not vanity) is what I kept commin back to. Plus to go 26"+, Hart recomends a #4 as the minimum, & I see no reason to go any shorter on a custom LR rig. As you can see in the pic on my signature weight is ALWAYS a concern where I hunt.
Just seems to be the best compromise of weight vs intended use, & packability/huntability imo.
Now if its a dedicated LR ONLY rig, heavier is generally better. & if its ELR, heavier is a must.
My $.02 anyway
