Re: Need help picking a barrel
A 1-10 twist is used for bullets weights of less than 160. A 1-9 twist is preferred for heavier bullets such as the Seirra 168 and 175 Match King. If you are target shooitng at 100 yds then it probably does not matter much. If you are shooting at 500yds and further then you pretty much need the high BC, high weigth bullets.
If you do not handlaod then you can tell him a std factory chamber. If you handlaod and know exactly what bullet you intend to shoot. Then you can give him a cartridge with the bullet seated in it and he will throat it to that bullet. A match chamber is probabaly not what you want on a hunting rifle and a std factory chamber is not what you want on a competition rifle.
If you are going to install a brake then you do not have to get into waht kind of crown to put on it.
You can have him make the barrel a couple of inches longer than you want and then when you burn up the thraot he can just cut off a couple of inches and rechamber and you are back in business.
Accurize the action.
Bed the action.
