long heavy barrel picture request

wanting to get some picture of long heavy barrels 28"+ . actually im hoping to see if anyone here is using a straight cylinder barrel like 1.250" or similar . also would like to see some pictures of barrels over 30" like 32-34". I seen that pacnor is the only company who makes a barrel over 30" correct ?

Look at the gun photo's forum. Also look at Kirby Allen's webpage.

You can get a barrel over 30" long from most barrel mfgs.

Almost all mfg will make you a barrel that long, but you are going to pay for every inch over their normal offered lengths.

search "black sunshine". I think that was the name of one of Kirby's prototype rifles for the .338 AM, If memory serves me correct it was a 40" or 42".

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

trebark those are some beautiful rifles especially the 300. Though I like the vias brake on the 260 I prefer that look of a radial brake . IM thinking on going with a 375 rum cutting edge bullets makes hunting vlds for the 375. they state their 300gr vld has a bc of 750 g1 which I think could be pushed to 3000 fps with the right barrel and powder. As ive been looking at reloading data. plus I could also shoot the other 375 bullets. I want to try the gmx I bought some for my 300 wm and never got t test them . after looking im think I am set on a cylinder 34" barrel.
my gunsmith is a big fan of cerakote as well but I would like a digital camo which he wont do . im in Georgia we don't have weight restrictions actually looked into buying a old jeep for hunting
