Re: Just ordered my action! Barrel contour?
Sounds like a very nice rig you're putting together. I went with a 27" Broughton 5C 5.5 Med Varmint Sporter non-fluted. If I had to do it again, I might lean to a longer and heavier barrel. I would definitely go with a 9 twist, although the 10 twist barrels seem to shoot the 230's well, I have read a couple of issues with those bullets in 10 twists. A 9 twist will also allow me to shoot a heavier high BC monometal. 10 Twists do not shoot the CEB 200 gr C22's well at sea level.
The first 2 Broughton's I ordered came ahead of schedule in about 3 months the last one I ordered this past spring came in about a month late. So did the Manner's stock I ordered from Stocky's. Ordered both about the same time and both came in about the same time a little late.
You will never know how much it has cost my generation to preserve your freedom. I hope you make good use of it.
