Want to re-barrel savage

I have a savage 11 in 270 wsm that i would like to build into a 243 win. What barrel manufacturers are there that offer a prefit barrel available? I would like a fluted barrel between 22-24" long and possibly a muzzle brake. I know ER shaw has one but only in 10" twist. I believe I want an 8 or 9" twist. Plan to shoot at longer ranges with 100 to 105 gr rounds.

I would appreciate any input,

Vic

Shilen, Pac Nor, McGowan, Sin Arms, Sharp Shooter Supply(if you can get through and or stand the wait) and a ton of others. Make sure they know it is for a large shank.

Don't forget that you'll also need a different mag box, bolthead, and firing pin assembly.

Yep, on short actions, the firing pins are different lengths between standard and magnum boltheads.

Shilen won't but there are gunsmiths and machinists that will.

I read on their web site that they don't recommend fluting and it will void the warranty. not that it would discourage me, I would just like to purchase the complete deal

I like the re-barrel Shilen did for me. I had an old Savage 110-308. Sent them the old barrel and action told them what I was looking for, they made some recommendations which I took and am very happy with there work. Bill Maylor.
