Hi guys. I'm looking for input on a barrel size/contour for a walking, long range 338 Edge. I've had a few custom rifles
built but they've all been too heavy to carry for long. I currently have an Edge with a 32" Mcgowan, straight taper to .850 and its waaaay too heavy to hike with for long. I've pretty much settled on a 28" barrel but not sure on the taper. Does anyone know what the taper is on the Gunwerks rifles you see on their show? Im thinking somewhere in the .700-.800 range but I think i could save weight with a sporter contour instead of a straight taper. Are there any pros, cons to either taper style, accuracy wise? Any input will be greatly appreciated.
