    I like a heavier barrel on all my rigs a Medium palma or #5 being about the lighest normaly and the heavy palma and strait #7 and #8 conture being more the norm.

    I have a heavy palma at the smith wating for an action and a MTU conture on the way from Brux barrels.

    + 1 #5 to #8 With #7 strait taper being the favorite.
