Pete,

iv'e found that any more than 26" in a stalking rifle a bit too long in the field - which is why mine are all no longer than 26".

Twist rate - well I would go with a 1-8" for 105 grainers in a .243 - but you may lose the ability to use lighter bullets in the gun as they may disintigrate through high rpm. (I found this problem in my 22-250AI, which has a 1-8 twist barrel - cannot use anything under 55 grains)

Profile - straight taper Kreiger no 7 light target is nice - even nicer with flutes! (.750" at crown)

Walther profile no 3170 is very similar to the above Kreiger and will be attached to my new 7mm LR gun once Pete gets all the bits and pieces "glued" together.

Ordered a 26" border barrel "profile to suit" AWP .243win in 1:8 twist with thread for moderator from sporting services.

Will try and get my mits on some 115gr pills for my real long range work, @ 3000fps they should be just the ticket!
