So I'm going to order a new barrel for my Savage model 12 and I am having a hard time deciding on the contour. I'm sticking to the 270 WSM but going with a 1-9 twist McGowen to shoot the 169.5 Wildcats or 150 Berger. I'm going to go 28 in long to get the last bit out of it but I kinda don't want to be much heavier than I am with the 26in factory varmint barrel, 12.5 lbs.
Here's a link to the contours, McGowen Precision Barrels LLC Contouring
, I can get any contour for the same $. I was kinda thinking a Sendero or Pac-Nor #6.
No fluting or straight contours. The link doesn't seem to work with Firefox very well.
Gotta decide before the end of the month to lock in a 10% new customer discount.
So, what do you all think?
