C&P from Lilja barrels ...

Long Barrels:

Most barrels can be ordered in a finish length up to 30". In some caliber and twist combinations we can make barrels up to 45". For a complete listing of these long barrel combinations

(Lilja Precision Rifle Barrels - Centerfire Precision Barrels)

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

Here is a #10 MTO Krieger. 28" long. It's getting rebarelled to .338 Edge a Brux 30" Sendero contour. I wouldn't recommend anything super long in thick in a standard action. Good chance for barrel droop.

Why so heavy? The 28" tube #10 made for a very heavy rifle.

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

well I long how a rifle feels with a long barrel. Weight isn't a issue for me I used to do construction work and im still quite young . besides this rifle wont ever be used for stalking that's for sure. I like your rifle by the way I was thinking about a kdf style brake or similar the guy at kdf were courteous when I talked to them

As noted, many barrel company's will make longer barrels on request. I ordered a 34" barrel from Krieger for my 338 Lapua Improved.

Re: long heavy barrel picture request

got a picture of your lapua or is it still being built ? Going to chrono your loads im interested in what velocity you get . I did think about a modoified heavy palma contour where it steps down to 1.00" then it stays 1.00" to the muzzle instead of .900 but it would probably have more barrel whip than a cylinder barrel . plus id hate for them to make a mistake. I got ahold of pacnor they usually email me back soon

The vias break are nice I just don't care for them shooting Prone lots of dirt blown back in your face. I am going with a APA fat bastard for my new build. It was between it and the muscle break.

Krieger charges as I recall 10 per inch over 30"? I love Krieger barrel I have had three and every one has been a tack driver. Lasted well beyound what is considered acceptable barrel life and cleaned super easy. I went with Brux becuase it was in stock and I didnt have to wait 7 months to get the Krieger.

34 on a lupy improved should be good for north of 3100 FPS.
