Hey guys i just was wondering how you pick the right barrel type.. i mean their are many great manufactures which that come just from personal preference but don't the style really get the job done for you. Varmit, pulmar, heavy Varmit, I was looking at getting a quote from Krieger, Saturn, and maybe hart or Sheilan or both but when i got on their web page you have to figure out what type.. i never really paid attention.. of what type is what??
i do know most of the time a heavy barrel is better than let say a light sporter.
if it will help you guys make a suggestion for me here is what i am building
my goal is to have a nice shooter out 1,000 yards or less that weights around 10 lbs when finished.
Mak ( tube gun frame)
magpul fully adjustable butt stock
jeweled 2 stage triger
remington 700 short action
from Shawn Carlock ( as soon as i tell him what the barrel size is)
i am thinking the barrel length should be 24" to 26"
i plan on shooting 139gr bullets at least to start with
any suggestion from you guys would be great.
