Re: Time for a new barrel

If you want to make first round hits past 1,000 yards, you should consider a Wolf with a 30 to 34 inch barrel. As far as a brake recommendation I am naturally biased, but Len Backus came down and shot a Wolf with one of my Anti-Torque brakes, and since he owns a Vias brake I think he can give you an honest comparison of the two designs. As far as barrel profiles go, Lilja makes them to our specs with 8 flutes, and they place less cantilevered load than a 32 incher of most other designs. Some time you just have to think outside the box to get better answers. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Read the posts on this board on the .300 Tomahawk, it's an awesome round, and they are having pretty good luck with the Remington Brass. I would guess that Laupa will be making brass for it at some point. The .300 RUM is a pretty popular round.
