Re: Please help me choose a barrel
26-28" is perfect.
1:9 is perfect.
Rem Varmint/Sendero contour is my favorite heavy barrel contour, and it is a nice compromise for weight, rigidity, & accuracy.
Also, if you can find one with 5R rifling. I really like the design of the 5R, as it doesn't create a pinch-point while the bullet is engaged with the rifling when traveling down the barrel. It's also seems easier to clean to me, and the barrels seem to be a little bit "slicker" when running a patch and brush down it. They also clean up quicker and don't seem to collect as much copper at my 6-groove standard rifled barrels do.
