Rebarrel a Wby Ultralight 257

I need to rebarrel my Wby 257 Ultralight. I want to keep the weight as light as possible, but obviously have an accurate rifle.

Which barrel manufacturer(s) do you suggest, and why? Which contour? I've considered Hart, Shilen, Douglas, and Krieger so far.

Thanks for your input.

Lilja has great barrels also and has a wide selection of barrel contours and can match the
existing barrel if you want .

Log on to www.Lilja precision rifle barrels.com and he list all of the contours and barrel weights.
